    Declaration Signer Robert Morris Autograph Endorsement Signed Twice "Robt. Morris". Accomplished on the verso of a Partly Printed Document Signed "John Nicholson". One page, 6.75" x 3.75", Philadelphia, April16, 1795, a promissory note from Nicholson to Morris for $10,000. Morris(1734-1806), Signer of the Declaration of Independence, financier and politician, was instrumental in the financing of Washington's armies, and later financially ruined through his speculation in western lands. At the time this endorsement was signed, he was a "guest" at the Prune Street debtor's prison in Philadelphia writes on the verso in a visibly shaky hand: "Robt Morris, April 16,1798 want of protest shall not impair the responsibility of Robt Morris." Unusual folds, else very good to fine condition.
