Four-language ship’s paper for a New Bedford whaler

Partly-printed DS as president, signed “J. Tyler,” one page, 20.75 x 16, October 13, 1845. Four language ship’s paper issued to “Humphrey Shearman, master or commander of the Bark called Cantin Packet…lying at present in the port of New Bedford bound for Pacific Ocean and laden with provisions, stores, and utensils for a whaling voyage.” Signed in the middle of the fourth panel by Tyler and countersigned by Secretary of State Abel Upshaw. In very good condition, with intersecting folds, one through a single letter of signature, old reinforcement along reverse of central vertical fold, scattered toning, and a couple of minor separations along folds. The white wafer seal is crisp and intact. A well-preserved example with Tyler’s signature quite large and prominent. Oversized. Pre-certified John Reznikoff/PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.
