Beautifully signed 1771 document from George Washington

Manuscript DS signed "Go: Washington," one page, 5 x 3.75, August 20, 1771. Manuscript document, in part: "Then came John…before me and made oath that he served the within Petition on Thos. Lewis the 5th day of July Last." Boldly signed at the conclusion by Washington. Trimmed and inlaid into a slightly larger sheet. In very good condition, with tape repairs to several split folds; Washington's signature is extremely bold and not affected. Encapsulated and graded by PSA/DNA as “NM-MT 8.” Thomas Lewis (1718–1790) was the first surveyor of Augusta County, Virginia, serving from 1745 to 1777; much of George Washington's great wealth was acquired by surveys of land under his authority.
