Sergeant Major John Champe (ca. 1752 30 September 1798) was a Revolutionary War senior enlisted soldier in the Continental Army who became a double agent in a failed attempt to capture the American traitor General Benedict Arnold (1741-1801). Champe enlisted in the Virginia Cavalry from Loudoun County in 1776 and was made sergeant major in "Lee's Legion", a unit commanded by (then Major) Henry Lee III, later and better known as Colonel "Light-horse Harry" Lee (and father of Gen. Robert E. Lee). Champe's family was said to be well known to Major Lee. A plan was formulated to kidnap the defecting General Benedict Arnold and bring him back to American lines to face court martial. in 1780 Champe "defected" to the British side where he was introduced to Arnold and soon gathered intelligence that established that there were no other American generals involved with Arnold. Champe formulated a plot to capture Arnold on his regular evening stroll, but before he could act the entire British unit, Champe included, embarked in New York on the Virginia Campaign of 1780-81. Thus, the whole endeavor had to be called off. ; Photograph ; 12mo 7" - 7" tall; 68 pages;

Jared Lillie, 1776, His Book, Lillie, Jared
6 Lillie, Jared Jared Lillie, 1776, His Book
None listed Jared Lillie 1776 First Edition; First Impression Ephemera Good with No dust jacket as issued 
This handwritten paper dated 1776 looks to be a journal/diary of author. Strings holding text block. There seems to be a missing page and two pages are missing half pages. This is a personal diarylike journal that contains handwritten notes of author in ink with poems, Ben Franklin obituary, Bill of Parcel, an Epitaph, List of children with birth dates from 1785 to 1806. (assumed to be Jared's children but no wife's name given). At the bottom of each page is written "Jared Lillie's book 1776" The handwriting is excellent and there are handwritten "decorations" throughout. Many of the pages have "ink blotting" that makes some pages hard to read. There are also arithmetic computations/calculations on a few pages. Research shows a Jared Lillie born March 27, 1759 to a Elisha and Hulda (Tilden) Lillie from Windham, Ct. This may be the same Jared as one of the children listed in the Journal is Elisha which would be Jared's father's name. There is no listing of a city, state or location in the journal so Windham, Ct could be correct or incorrect. This is an excellent example of a "period" piece of early Americana ephemera dated the year 1776. See scan of cover. Book now in archival sleeve to protect condition. Rare, unique. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 12 pages
