Partly-printed vellum DS, signed "Th: Jefferson" as president and "James Madison" as secretary of state, one page, 12.5 x 9, February 24, 1802. Under the "Act regulating the grants of land appropriated for the refugees from the British Provinces of Canada and Nova Scotia," President Jefferson grants 323 acres of land to Lewis F. Delesdernier. Prominently signed at the conclusion by President Jefferson and boldly countersigned by Secretary of State Madison. Handsomely archivally double-suede matted and framed with portraits of both statesmen to an overall size of 22 x 29. In fine condition, with a bit of light staining just touching the tail of Madison's signature. An exceptional document boasting two ideal examples of these founding fathers' signatures.
