    Description

    George Ross, Signer of the Declaration of Independence, Document Signed "Geo. Ross". Three pages, plus a single page addendum, 7.75" x 12.5", October 9, 1777, addendum dated December 1, 1798. Ross signs a complicated article of agreement to sell valuable land in and around Spring Forge, Pennsylvania to William Bell. The transaction is conducted in both Continental dollars as well as pounds. The addendum document, probably to confirm title to the property, and drawn up after Ross had died, confirms that George Edge was present at the original transaction. The documents are toned with some scattered light foxing. There are some splits in the fold creases, otherwise the documents are in very good condition.
