The scarce Maryland patriot
Description                           Estimate: $600+          

American planter and second governor of Maryland (1745—1819) who worked closely with the founding fathers during the nation’s birth, and served as a delegate at the 1783 Congress of the Confederation and as a member of the House of Delegates in 1787. Revolutionary War-dated ALS signed “Tho. S. Lee,” one page, 6.25 x 7.75, December 1, 1782. Letter to General Gates concerning a delivery of 200 pounds of gold, in which he informs the general that he is unable to make it to Traveller’s Rest, in part: “Permit me therefore to request the favor of you to meet me at One O’clock at Sheperd’s Town or as soon afterwards as may be convenient to you.” Addressed on the reverse of the second integral page in Lee’s own hand. In fine condition, with seal-related paper loss to the integral address leaf. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
