    Description

    King George V and Winston Churchill Signed Pardon. Amusing content in this rare typed 8" x 13" pardon signed April 5, 1911, at the Court at St. James's in London. Signed at the top "George R. I." and at the bottom "W Churchill", this document-"By His Majesty's Command"-pardoned Blanche Rogers who, on February 4, 1911, had been "convicted of allowing a dog to be at large without a name on its collar and ordered to pay a fine of 1/- and 7/- costs." The document-with a black "mourning band" edge in remembrance of King Edward VII, who died the previous year-is in very good condition with some soiling, minor staining, and minor wear at the corners. The signatures have faded to brown but are still very legible.
