Wonderful Jefferson-Madison scallop-topped ship’s pass

Partly-printed vellum DS, signed “Th: Jefferson” as president and “James Madison” as secretary of state, one page, 12.5 x 16, July 13, 1804. Scallop-topped ship’s pass issued for “the Ship Jenny of New York, Richard Ward master or commander…mounted with no guns, navigated with Twelve men to pass with her Company, Passengers, Goods and Merchandize without any hindrance, seizure or molestation.” Signed at the conclusion by President Jefferson and Secretary of State Madison. The white paper seal affixed to the lower left remains fully intact, as do two seals affixed to the reverse. In very good condition, with intersecting folds (one vertical fold passing through a single letter of Madison’s signature), overall wrinkling, and show-through from docketing and wax seals to reverse. A tremendously desirable pairing of two American founding fathers in an uncommon and appealing format. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
