Foreclosure on a British Loyalist

Massachusetts lawyer (1731–1814) who served as one of the prosecutors of British soldiers during the Boston Massacre trial; he later signed the Declaration of Independence. Revolutionary War–dated partly-printed DS, signed “Rob. Treat Paine,” one page, 11 x 17.5, March 2, 1780. An official legal document confiscating the lands of a Loyalist. In part: “Be it remembered, That Robert Treat Paine Esq Attorney General of the Government and People of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts in New England and in their behalf complains of William Brattle late of Cambridge…did withdraw himself from this Province, Colony and State, into Parts and Places under the acknowledged Authority and Dominion of the said King of Great-Britain.” In very good condition, with toned intersecting folds (one vertical fold passing through a single letter of the signature), areas of paper loss at intersections (affecting a few words), and light mirroring to ink. Pre-certified John Reznikoff/PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.
