    HUGE 1798 JOHN ADAMS OHIO LAND GRANT, SIGNED AS PRESIDENT. One of an historic group of land grants known as the "French Grants," authorized by Congress to compensate a group of French immigrants induced to settle here by the speculative Scioto Company in 1791, only to learn that their land was worthless. Assigns title to a large tract of land on the Ohio River in Scioto County. Also signed by Secretary of State Timothy Pickering. Has ink staining down the center as shown, and has had very minor professional restoration of separation along the center fold line. However, the President’s signature is a superb, bold large one (length over 3 ½"!). 20 x 24." LOA Spence and Grad PSA/DNA. (# This item may require additional shipping charges).
