Lengthy 1854 handwritten law document
Description  

Partial ADS, unsigned, two pages, 7.5 x 9.75, undated [but 1854]. The first two pages of a lengthy handwritten legal document regarding three related cases between Eliphalet Knight and his former business partner John Mattoon, in part: “To the Honorable the Judge of the Vermilion Circuit court in Chancery sitting. Humbly complaining sheweth unto your Honor your orator Eliphalet R. Knight that one John Mattoon has commenced an act of Trover against your orator in this Honorable court…for three promissory notes, given by your orator to said Mattoon for the respective sums of sixty six, one hundred, and one hundred and fifty dollars.” Both pages are backed with heavier sheets for restoration and are removably encapsulated in plastic sleeves. In fair to good condition, with many tears and paper loss throughout (affecting several words and phrases), scattered staining and show-through from adhesive used to restore fragmented portions of the document, and generally threadbare appearance. An excellent document from Lincoln’s legal days, boasting over 450 words in his own hand. Pre-certified John Reznikoff/PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.
