Exceptional twice-signed document for a fellow Texas revolutionary

Twice-signed manuscript DS, one page, 7.75 x 9.75, April 4, 1844. Document approving the purchase of candles. In part: “Genl Sam Houston, For Executive Contingents, to J. Shackelford, August 11, 1842 To 1 Box Sperm Candles…$27.56.” Signed at the conclusion by Houston, “Approved, Sam Houston, 4th Apl 1844,” and also endorsed over the body of the document by Houston, “Pay this, Sam Houston.” In very good condition, with scattered soiling, a horizontal fold passing through the main signature, and some small tape-repaired separations to folds. Jack Shackelford was a doctor who served in the Texas Revolution as a commander under James Fannin and was taken prisoner at the Battle of Coleto in 1836. While most of his fellow Texian prisoners were executed in the Goliad Massacre, Shackelford’s life was spared so that he could care for wounded Mexican troops. This document dates to just one year before Texas was granted statehood, a significant moment in its history. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
