1862 Phila. BOND to THE NORTHERN SOUP SOCIETY

NOTICE

********NOW OPERATING FROM OUR NEW HEADQUARTERS ********



Now fully operational from the beautiful Pacific North West, we encourage all to keep a close eye as we unpack posted offerings and continue what will be an ongoing effort of unpacking the collection while taking stock with an eye toward thinning out our accumulation of treasures. After years of seeking out and acquiring all manner of quality antique Americana from simple but seldom surviving items of special interest to historically important treasures, Janet and I look forward to offering the fruits of our years of seeking out such to new and appreciative homes.

An attractive remnant of the hard financial times of the Civil War, this 8 ¾" X 15 bond was printed by the American Bank Note Company for issue to those who had the means and the desire to loan funds to the City of Philadelphia as it struggled to meat war time debt. This beautifully engraved bond certifies a loan of $1400.00 to the city by The Northern Soup Society. The loan bond is issued on the 16th of January 1862 and is redeemable July 1872 at 6% interest paid annually in two half payments. The bond is drawn in a fine hand in brown ink and is signed by the City Collector Geo. W. Hufty and City Treasurer James McClintock. The Northern Soup Society was a leading beneficiary of Philadelphia’s needy and was well known to Union soldiers who depended on there generosity as they passed through the city. Many a discharged and partially disabled trooper took refuge and a hot meal here as he made his way east from the front.
