Description


Signer of the Declaration of Independence from Delaware (1728-1784) who, on July 2, 1776, famously rode his horse 80 miles non-stop to break the deadlock within the Delaware delegation and vote in favor of independence. Revolutionary War-dated ADS, signed “Caesar Rodney, Speaker,” one page, 7 x 3.5, July 28, 1776. Promissory note issued to "the Trustee of the General Loan Office for the County of Kent," in full: "Please to pay to James Adams—or order, the Sum of Ten Pounds, Six Shillings, & one half penny—out of the Interest arising from the public money in your Hands and the same shall be allowed you at Settlement with the Committee of Assembly." Signed boldly at the conclusion by Rodney. In very good to fine condition, with edge tears and paper loss to the top, partially repaired with tape on the reverse. From the Collection of Dr. Lawrence E. Miller.
