The front page features five Acts of Congress, each signed in script type by the President: John Adams. The very first is: "An Act for Erecting a light-house at Gay-Head on Martha's Vineyard, and for other purposes." The Gay Head lighthouse is quite historic. The "other purposes" are for a lighted beacon at the port of Savannah, and a lighted beacon at the inlet of Cape Fear River, N.C.
Four pages, nice condition.
