Revolutionary War Interest Signed Letter from Cadwalader Evans Pennsylvania
Interesting letter to Register General Comptroller John Donaldson from Cadwalader Evans that pertains to the recovering of debt from the previous late controller. I have provided images of the letter for your interpretation.
The position of Register General had been originally created to liquidate claims against the state for services performed during the Revolutionary War, and to assist in the final settlement of public accounts. In effect, his purpose was to streamline and keep track of the different kinds of paper currency and state debt notes (certificates) that were used by the Commonwealth as payment during and immediately after the Revolutionary War.
Cadwalader Evans (December 25, 1762 – October 26, 1841) was a member of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives and served as speaker in 1799.
