Scarce boldly signed presidential land grant “for satisfying Warrants for Military services”
Description  

Partly-printed vellum DS as president, one page, 13.5 x 10.25, May 7, 1800. President Adams grants John Stites a plot of 4000 acres, “in pursuance of the act of Congress passed on the first day of June 1796, entitled ‘An Act regulating the grants of Land appropriated for Military services, and for the society of the United Brethren for propagating the Gospel among the Heathen’…there is granted unto John Stites a certain tract of land estimated to contain Four Thousand acres…of the tract appropriated for satisfying Warrants for Military services.” Boldly signed at the conclusion by President Adams and countersigned by Secretary of State Timothy Pickering. The white paper seal affixed to the lower left remains fully intact and crisply embossed. In very good condition, with intersecting folds (one vertical fold passing through a single letter of the signature), scattered staining and surface scuffs, and some areas of wear to the vellum. Presidential documents issued by Adams are quite scarce, and infrequently found with such a strong signature. Pre-certified John Reznikoff/PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.
