    Description

    Patrick Henry Autograph Letter Signed "P. Henry, Jr." One page, 7.25" x 4", n.p., n.d., to an unknown recipient concerning a land survey. Henry rarely added "Jr." to his name, usually using it to distinguish him from his uncle Patrick Henry. He writes in part: "I do not think it essential to mention precisely the spot where the surveyor is to begin. If he admits on his book an Entry in the words you mention I should think he may lawfully make the survey for Wilkinson." This document, along with a color portrait (7" x 8.5") of Henry and an engraved plaque (3.5" x .5"), are handsomely matted and framed to an overall size of 22.5" x 15.5". The document has flattened folds and is age-toned. The signature has a light stain across the "nry", but is bold and easily read; fine.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
