Scarce 1779 handwritten receipt by Lyman Hall

Signer of the Declaration of Independence from Georgia (1724-1790) who went on to serve as governor of the state. Revolutionary War-dated ADS, one page, 7.5 x 2.5, May 4, 1779. Handwritten receipt of payment, in full: "1779, Rec'd 4th May of Dr. James Dunsany the sum of Thirteen Hundred & two pounds five shillings So: Carolina Currency, which he Rec'd of Mr. Joshua Lockwood for me." In very good to fine condition, with scattered staining and toning, and a professionally-repaired area of paper loss to the left edge. Hall ranks among the rarest signers of the Declaration of Independence, and war-dated autograph material is especially highly sought.
