Partly-printed vellum DS, signed “Th: Jefferson” as president and “James Madison” as secretary of state, one page, 11.5 x 12.5, August 27, 1805. Fantastic land grant issued to William Brown of Brooke County, Virginia, for "the Lot or Section number Three of Township number Nine in Range number Four of the Lands directed to be sold at Steubenville." Boldly and prominently signed at the conclusion by President Jefferson, and countersigned by Secretary of State Madison. The crisply embossed paper seal affixed to the lower left remains fully intact. In fine condition, with one tiny hole, light soiling, and light toning along intersecting folds. A beautiful dual-signed document from two of America's most significant founding fathers.
