Signer of the Declaration of Independence from Georgia (1724–1790) who went on to serve as governor of the state. Extremely rare ALS signed “L. Hall,” one page, 7.75 x 9.5, November 20, 1786. Letter to George Jones, the treasurer of Georgia. In full: “I had ordered last Spring or begin’g of Summer a payment to be made on my bond to the public. Mr. Milton, who was to have made the paym’t now Informs me that he applyed to you in Company with Mr. Andrew & that you said the bond was not in your office. Mr. Cuthbert told me he Del’d it over to you (according to best of my Remembrance) pray look over the copy of the rec’t you gave Mr. Cuthbert—if not in your office, pray write me a line & acquaint me if you know where it is. Sh’d you on review find it in your office, please acquaint Col Milton who will make paym’t accord’g to our agreement & you’l please Inclose as at the time he made his application. This ought to be done before the Meeting of the House.” Addressed on the reverse of the second integral page in Hall’s hand. In fine condition, with intersecting folds, scattered creases, and paper loss to second integral address leaf from seal removal. Hall was two years removed from his position as governor by this point, having returned to his original occupation as a physician. He is among the rarest of all Declaration signers and autograph letters signed are certainly the most desirable format obtainable. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
