Most of the front page is taken up with an Act of Congress: "An ACT Authorizing & Directing the Secretary at War to Place Certain Persons therein named on the Pension List", with a huge list of names (great for genealogical purposes). It complete at the top of page 2 where it is signed in script type by the President: Go. Washington.
Four pages, an old tape mend across page 4 affecting only ads, nice condition.
