Description                           Estimate: $600 - $800          

American military captain and explorer (1779–1813) who, at the behest of President Thomas Jefferson, led an expedition through the Louisiana Territory and recorded the discovery of what is now known as Pikes Peak. Rare ADS, signed “Zeb. Pike, Capt.,” one page both sides, 7.75 x 7, February 5, 1813. Pike approves a payment, in full: “Bill is correct—A. S. Brooks Capt. Actg., The Adjt D: Q. Master. Will pay the within account.” The reverse describes the order in another hand as “Printing 100 Returns of Ordnance, Stores, &c.” In very good condition, with intersecting folds passing though the body and signature, overall toning, and rough edges. At this time Pike was leading troops in northern New York during the War of 1812. He was killed just a few months after signing this document while commanding combat forces at the Battle of York. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
