Description

    [George Washington]. John Washington Document Signed. Page one of a bifolium, 9.25" x 14.5". Annapolis Royal, Nova Scotia; circa 1721. Contemporary copies of four orders from Lt. Governor John Doucett to Lieutenant John Washington, likely serving as Quartermaster at Annapolis Royal based on the nature of the orders. The orders are dated from August 22, 1721 through September 13, 1721 and refer to the delivery of building materials and building and repairs of barracks and officers' houses. John Washington's signature appears at the lower right of the document. Docketed on verso.

    A photocopy of a page from a 1949 catalog produced by Dr. A.S.W. Rosenbach lists a similar document but dated circa May 1720 and selling for $95 is included as reference. Rosenbach identifies Lt. Washington as George Washington's uncle.

    Condition: Wear at all edges and flattened folds, reinforced on verso. Light soiling throughout. Encapsulated.
