Description


Partly-printed DS as president, signed “G:o Washington,” one page, 12.75 x 15.25, December 10, 1794. Three-language ship’s papers, in French, English, and Dutch, issued to “James McKinzie master or commander of the Brig called the Peggy…lying at present in the port of Alexa bound for Madeira and laden with Flour, Wheat, Indian Corn & Beans to depart and proceed with his said Vessel & Cargos on his said voyage.” Signed in the center by President Washington and countersigned by Secretary of State Edmund Randolph. The white paper seal affixed to the left side remains crisp and fully intact. Handsomely double-matted and framed with an engraved portrait to an overall size of 31 x 26. Partial separations to intersecting folds crudely repaired on the reverse, the central area of Washington’s signature split and mended, show-through from toned tape and adhesive to reverse, and chipping to trimmed edges, otherwise very good condition. Washington himself was quite fond of Madeira wine, and had previously sent flour produced by his gristmill at Mount Vernon directly to Madeira in exchange for wine and other products from the islands. A desirable presidential document concerning early international trade. Pre-certified John Reznikoff/PSA/DNA.
