    SAMUEL SQUIRE served in the Commissary Department in 1775 and supplied the troops raised during the Siege of Boston. Squire was instructed to take any materials he needed from shops and if those supplies were withheld, he was told to take officers with him and confiscate the items with force. In 1776, he fought at Fort Washington and was captured. 

    Offering a very fine Revolutionary WAR-DATE receipt from Fairfield, CT, June 24th, 1779. “There certified that I have rec’d of Mr. Hooker St. John Two pair of Shews [shoes] to be forwarded to the Soldiers of this State in the Continental Line. Sam’l Squire, Comm.”

    Nice period docketing on verso noting the receipt was for Hooker St. John. Some research included.

    Toning, folds but very good overall.
