    Description

    Mirabeau B. Lamar Land Certificate Signed as president of the Republic of Texas. One page, 16.75" x 10.5", February 25, 1839. In part: "I Mirabeau B. Lamar President of the Republic aforesaid in virtue of the power vested in me by Law, do by these presents grant to Thomas Jefferson Chambers his heirs and assigns forever Sixty seven and Sixty Eight hundredth acres of Land . . . on Galveston Island." Countersigned by Land Office Commissioner General John P. Borden, a veteran of the Texas Revolution. Later in 1839, Borden oversaw the transporting of all Texas Republic's land archives from Houston to the new capital at Austin. Tape repairs and resulting discoloration along separated central fold, with slight paper loss, though signatures remain unaffected. Docketing on verso. Very good.
