    George Walton Autograph Letter Signed. One page, approximately 8" x 6.25", n.p., October 22, 1796. A member of the Continental Congress and Signer of the Declaration of Independence, George Walton also served the nation as Governor of Georgia (1779-80 and 1789-90) and as a congressman in both the US House (1780-1781) and Senate (1795-96). Here, he writes to an unknown correspondent, concerning past-due wages from his term as Chief Justice of Georgia (1783-89).

    "Dr Sir, You told me last fall, at the time of my acceptance of the appointment to Congress, that there was a balance of Sixty-five dollars due on my Judge's Salary; the warrant for which I now request you will deliver to the bearer, and consider and file this as a sufficient receipt. With compliments to the Governor, I am, Dear Sir, Your friend & servant, Geo. Walton."

    This boldly penned letter shows moderate toning, with minor ink bleedthrough from docket on verso.
