British general (1738–1805) who served in America from 1776 to his surrender at Yorktown in 1781. Partly-printed vellum DS, signed “Cornwallis,” one page, 16.5 x 10.5, January 18, 1796. Cornwallis appoints Henry Capell to be “Junior Clerk in the Treasurer’s Office (on the Establishm’t of the Ordnance) in the Room of Randle Cadman resigned.” Signed in the lower right by Cornwallis and countersigned by two other officials. The white paper seal and blue ribbon affixed to the upper left remain intact with scattered creases. In very good condition, with intersecting folds (a few small tape-repaired edge separations), scattered creases and soiling, and the overall writing and signature a shade light. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
