Choice partly-printed DS, signed “B. Franklin,” one page, 12 x 7, June 12, 1786. Commonwealth of Pennsylvania document attesting that William Webb is “a Notary and Tabellion Public in and for the said Commonwealth, duly appointed and commissioned.” Beautifully signed on the left side in bold ink by Franklin and countersigned by James Trimble. The large seal affixed above Franklin’s signature remains fully intact. Attractively matted and framed with a portrait and printed description to an overall size of 21 x 19. In fine condition, with intersecting folds (horizontal folds lightly passing through the signature) and mild soiling; an extremely bright, crisp example of an official Franklin document. Franklin issued this document as president of the Supreme Executive Council of Pennsylvania, a position analogous to the modern position of governor. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
