    John Tyler Document Signed as president and countersigned by Daniel Webster as secretary of state. Four integral pages written on page one, 7.75" x 13.25", Washington, D.C., January 14, 1843, on laid paper watermarked "Jessups." The document authorizes James Chamberlayne Pickett, chargé d'affaires to the Republic of Peru, to deliver the United States ratification of a treaty between the two nations signed by Pickett on March 17, 1841 in Lima. The treaty provides for "the adjustment of claims of citizens of the United States upon that [the Peruvian] Government." The treaty was a major milestone in establishing a robust economic relationship between the United States and the fledgling Republic of Peru. The document retains the affixed embossed paper seal of the United States.
