Unique land indenture signed by two Marylanders-turned-Supreme Court justices

Signer of the Declaration of Independence from Maryland (1741-1811) and Associate Justice of the Supreme Court from 1796 until his death. Manuscript DS, three pages on two adjoining sheets, 9.5 x 15, May 16, 1793. Chase signs a manuscript endorsement at the conclusion of a land indenture deed between Thomas Hyde, Gabriel Duvall, and Charles Stewart, certifying that they came before the judges of the General Court and "severally acknowledged the same to be their art and Deed, and the Lands therein mentioned to be the right title and estate of John Gibson Junior, in the said deed named." Notably, the indenture is also signed by the three men mentioned, including Duvall, who would fill the vacancy on the United States Supreme Court created upon Chase's death. In very good to fine condition, with areas of paper loss to the edges, silking to the back of the signed page, and complete silking to the other page.
