Granting safe passage to a New Bedford whaling vessel
Description  

Partly-printed DS as president, one page, 21.75 x 16.75, November 11, 1859. Four language ship’s paper issued to “James Nichols, master or commander of the Ship called Rainbow …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 right panel by Buchanan and countersigned by Secretary of State Lewis Cass. In very good to fine condition, with intersecting folds, one through a single letter of signature, old reinforcement to reverse of central vertical fold, and scattered toning, including an area of circular toning from seal. The white wafer seal is toned and intact. Buchanan’s signature is large and crisp. An uncommon example enhanced by its desirable whaling connection. Oversized.
