A 1795 peace offering “for the Delawares” at Greenville

ADS, signed “Wm. H. Harrison, a. d. c.,” one page, 7.5 x 2.5, July 29, 1795. Requisition document to the commissary at Greenville. In full: “The commissary will issue for the Delawares one hundred & fifty pounds of flour & beef.” In fine condition, with smoothed intersecting folds, light toning, and a few stray ink marks. At this time, Harrison was just 22 years old and serving as aide-de-camp to General ‘Mad’ Anthony Wayne in the Ohio Indian Wars. Just four days after issuing this order he was one of the signatories of the Treaty of Greenville, which ended the Northwest Indian War. In the treaty a coalition of Native American tribes, including the Delaware, Potawatomi, Chippewa, Miami, Ottawa, and Shawnee, ceded a large area of midwestern land to the United States in exchange for goods valued at $20,000. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
