Two script George Washington signatures...
Item # 603490
September 2, 1795
COLUMBIAN CENTINEL, Boston, Sept. 2, 1795 The front page has an address: "To The President of the United States" by the "...subscribers, merchants & traders of the city of Philadelphia." which carries over to page 2. Most of the document is taken up with a very lengthy list of names of those who signed it. It is followed on page 2 by the response from the President, a rather brief letter signed in script type: Go. Washington (see). Page 2 has a letter also signed in script by the President: Go. Washington, sent to the President of the chamber of commerce (see).
Four pages, archivally rejoined at the spine, otherwise in nice condition.
