    Description

    Edwin Waller Court Document Signed Twice. Two pages, 7.75" x 12.75", March 1, 1848, Austin County, Texas, to "the Sheriff of Brazoria County." Edwin Waller (1800-1881) faithfully served Texas in many ways. He was in the Texas Provisional Government's General Council. He was later sent by Brazoria as a delegate to the Convention of 1836, where he signed the Texas Declaration of Independence and helped draft the new republic's constitution. During the lifetime of the republic, he was Austin's first mayor. When this document was signed, he was the chief justice of Austin County. Later, as the only signer of the Texas Declaration of Independence to attend the secession convention, he was allowed to sign the ordinance of secession below the convention's president. Waller has signed on page one and in the document's docketing. Tan paper; fine.
