The Old North Church sexton who aided Paul Revere—‘One if by land, two if by sea’
Description  

DS, one page, 7.25 x 4, August 10, 1787. A financial document concerning funeral expenses, listing the costs of “Digging Grave for Negro Woman,” “Cash Pd for ye Pall,” “Ditto for toaling Bells,” and “My attendance, Borrowing chears, &c.” Boldly signed at the conclusion by Newman. Intersecting folds, one small tear repaired on the reverse, toning, and an ink blot to the left side, otherwise fine condition. Accompanied by a mailing envelope postmarked Charlestown, Massachusetts, November 14, 1876, addressed to E. N. Coburn, noted to be the envelope in which the document was preserved. On April 18, 1775, it was Newman who hung lanterns in the steeple of Old North Church to alert Paul Revere and the colonial militia of the forthcoming British invasion by sea. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
