    Patrick Henry Document Signed "P. Henry". One page, 8" x 8", Henry County, Virginia, September 17, 1782, a document signed by Patrick Henry as witness to a land transaction involving the trade of a Negro man. In part, as written: "...The said Bush sells to the said Hariston in fee simple with a general Warranty his Land on Marrowbone being one Hundred Acres for the Consideration of three hundred pounds to be paid in the floowing manner. Viz. for one Negro man Harry at the price of one hundred pounds, one waggon & [?] at fifty pounds, a stallion at fifty pounds, a gelding as valuable as the stallion to be adjudged by Jno. East & so discount fifty pounds with any creditor of Col. Panniell...& to pay the said Bushs Taxs this year..." Henry was a prominent figure in the American Revolution, known and remembered primarily for his "Give me liberty or give me death" speech. Along with Samuel Adams and Thomas Paine, he was one of the most influential (and radical) advocates of the American Revolution. Light age toning as expected, weak at folds, otherwise very good.
