These are to certify that the bearer hereof Archibald Elliott Private in the 2nd New York Regiment having faithfully served the United States Six Years and four months and being inlisted [sic] for the War only, is hereby Discharged from the American Army.” Signed at the conclusion by Washington and countersigned by Jonathan Trumbull, Jr. Bottom of the document also notes that Elliott was presented the Badge of Merit for six years of faithful service.
