Description


Partial self-contained manuscript DS, signed “B. Franklin, Presid't,” one page, 9.75 x 7.5, November 17, 1786. Legal petition in the bankruptcy case of "James Collins of the City of Philadelphia, Merchant," crisply signed at the conclusion by Franklin as president of the Supreme Executive Council of Pennsylvania. Attractively mounted and matted with a color print to an overall size of 19 x 24.25. In very good condition, with the central portion of the original document missing (the top and bottom portions, with small ink touch-ups, have been joined at a later date), some old repairs to fold splits on the reverse, toning from previous display, and loss to the upper right corner tip. The signature itself is clear, dark, and otherwise unaffected.
