Description


Partly-printed DS as president, signed “Th: Jefferson" as president and "James Madison" as secretary of state, one page, 15.75 x 8.75, January 1, 1805. Desirable military land grant issued to Henry Weaver, "a Soldier in the late Army of the United States, in consideration of his Military Service," for a tract of land containing 100 acres, "in pursuance of the act of Congress passed on the first day of June 1796, entitled 'An Act regulating the grants of Land appropriated for Military Services, and for the Society of the United Brethren for propagating the gospel among the Heathen.'" Signed at the conclusion by President Jefferson and countersigned by Secretary of State Madison. The wrinkled paper seal affixed to the lower left remains intact. In very good condition, with overall staining which renders the handwritten body of the document difficult to decipher; Madison's signature is very light, while Jefferson's signature remains very legible. This type of land grant was typically issued as compensation for military service during the Revolutionary War—a desirable example signed by two founding fathers.
