American Manufacture

Receipt, 1809. This 1809 AMERICAN MANUFACTURE document served as an order from Tench Coxe, in his position as Purveyor of Public Supplies, for Sea Island cotton for the military. It is also a signed receipt for payment to Robert Whittle, and a signed receipt (”Geo Ingalls”?) as the goods were put into  inventory at the U.S. Arsenal. The latter signed receipts are marked as duplicates, there apparently being a desire to have the entire transaction recorded on this one piece of paper.
