Signer of the Declaration of Independence from Delaware (1734-1817) who later served as president of the Continental Congress, Chief Justice of Pennsylvania, and Governor of Pennsylvania. Partly-printed DS, signed “Tho. M:Kean,” one page, 13.25 x 4.25, March 30, 1799. Writ to "the Justices of the County Court of Common Pleas," commanding prisoners John Crever, William Moore, and John Moore "unto your custody" and to be held and detained "before the Justices of the Supreme Court of the State of Pennsylvania." Signed at the conclusion by McKean as Chief Justice of Pennsylvania, and countersigned by Edward Burd as prothonotary of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court. Paper seal remains affixed to left side. Suede-matted and framed with an engraved plate and image of McKean to an overall size of 20.5 x 19.75. In very good to fine condition, with light toning along the three vertical folds (the central fold appears to have been completely separated and repaired on the reverse).
