John Hancock signed Revolutionary War document, addressed to Commissary General Joseph Trumbell at Headquarters Morris Town, inscribed Sir, It is the direction of Congress that you repair with all dispatch to Philadelphia, John Hancock, Pres., to Col. Joseph Trumbell Philad. 20 April 1777, Joseph Trumbell resigned the 2nd of August 1777 after in the spring of 1777 an impatient Congress approved an ill-advised reorganization that split Trumbull's job in two: one commissary general for purchases and another for issues, 8 1/2" x 7". One can speculate that this dispatch was to discuss his roll in supplying the Army with provisions.
