    John Hancock Document Signed as governor of Massachusetts. One page, partially printed, 6.5" x 8.5", Boston, Massachusetts, November 14, 1782. This document directed to pay "Hon'ble Nath[aniel] Gohham Esq., Speaker to the Hon'ble House of Representatives the Sum of Thirteen pounds & eight pence in full. . . for Forty six days attendance as Speaker over & above his pay as a Member of said House." Docketing on verso. Hancock's signature is bold and prominent, very similar to his famous Declaration of Independence signature. Perfect for display!
