Rare slave trade document signed by a hero of the Revolution

Commodore in the United States Navy (1759-1818) who served in the Revolutionary War and the War of 1812. Partly-printed DS, in Spanish, one page, 5.75 x 7.75, January 14, 1792. Rare document associated with the slave trade, in part (translated): "Please send a deed in favor of Dr. Francisco de Leon of a Negro that I have sold him…in the price of One Hundred and Eighty Pesos." In very good condition, with heavy staining, paper loss due to ink erosion, and the signature a few shades light but entirely legible. Accompanied by an engraved portrait bearing a facsimile signature.
