Description  

Brother of George Washington and member of the fifth Virginia Convention (1736–1787). Revolutionary War–dated ADS signed “John Aug’t Washington,” one page, 5.25 x 8.25, August 27, 1779. Power of attorney document. In part: “I do hereby constitute and appoint Mr. Wm. Booth of Hampshire County my attorney to receive all the rents that are or may become due on the Lands belonging to my Ward Mr. George Washington in the said County of Berkley.” In very good condition, with intersecting folds, scattered creases and soiling, several tiny pinholes, toned tape remnants to one edge, show-through from docketing to reverse, and some brushing and spreading to ink (including one letter of the signature). John tended to his brother’s business interests during the war, as is evident in the present document. A wonderful association with a direct mention of the early American leader. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
