    Description

    Albany, NY- Albany February 17, 1776 Personal Promissory Note $1/4 (2s) Repaired Very Fine.
    Two wide margins are seen on this $1/4 example that has a tape repair to the center split. The four authorized signers for the issue were all members of the Albany City Committee, the local Committee of Correspondence. A letter was sent by them to the Committee of Correspondence in Boston dated May 1, 1775 which began, "While we lament the mournful event which has caused the Blood of our Brethren in the Massachusetts Bay to flow, we feel that satisfaction which every honest American must experience at the Glorious stand you have made, we have an additional satisfaction from the consequences which we trust will [ensue] in uniting every American in Sentiments and Bonds, which we hope will be indissoluble by our Enemies."
    From The Collection of a Patriotic American
