    George Washington Signed Cover, Including His Family Seal. 2.5" x 5.5", in full "His Excellency / Governor Johnson / G:o Washington" Thomas Johnson (1732-1819) served as Governor of Maryland, a delegate to the Continental Congress, and an Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court. In June 1775 he nominated Washington to head the Continental Army. In turn, President Washington nominated Johnson to the Supreme Court in 1791. In 1801 Johnson suggested the name "Washington" for the new United States capitol in the District of Columbia. The document, which has been tastefully matted and framed with the famous Gilbert Stuart image of Washington, is in good condition with one horizontal fold; the wax seal is nearly intact with some chipping. Accompanied by a COA from PSA/DNA.
