Description

As governor of Georgia, Lyman Hall aims to "cultivate harmony of sentiment and uniformity of Practice on the principles of the Federal Union"

LS, one page, 6.5 x 8.5, August 25, 1783. Letter to "His Excellency," likely the governor of a neighboring state, in part: "I have the honor the enclose to your Excellency a copy of a resolution of the Assembly of this State; and also a copy of the names of such persons as refer'd to in the resolution—the general design of which is sufficiently explained therein, and have only to observe to your Excellency, that I am convinced the motive in this State to this proceeding arises from a disposition to cultivate harmony of sentiment and uniformity of Practice on the principles of the Federal Union, that the safety and honor of the whole may be inviolably preserved. I flatter my self it will meet your Excellency's approbation, and that as soon as convenient, I shall be honored with a return of the names of such persons as are proscribed by the Laws of your State, and the measures adopted to render such Laws inevasive and effectual." In fine condition. Hall ranks among the rarest signers of the Declaration of Independence, and this letter—with excellent content, written as governor of Georgia—is an exceptional exemplar.
