Description

    Patrick Henry Manuscript Document in His Hand and Signed Five Times, 1794 Autograph document signed five times in text "Patrick Henry," "P Henry," twice "Henry," and "P Henry" on the docket on verso, 1 page, 7.25" x 12", Charlotte County, [Virginia], Jan. 17, 1794. Henry drafts a legal document which reads in part: "Know all men by these presents that we Richard M. Booker of Charlotte Cty & Patrick Henry of Campbell Cty are held firmly bound unto Thomas Scott of Charlotte County in the just & full sum of one thousand pounds current Money of Virginia... the condition of this obligation is such that whereas the said Thomas Scot is bound as a security for the said R. M. Booker in his appear[ance] ag[ainst] William Taylor in the suit now depending in the high court of chancery...the said R. M. Booker & the said P Henry shall indemnify & make harmless the said Thomas Scott... the said Securityship, so as that the said Indemnification shall not exceed one thousand pounds..." Signed by witnesses Absalom Watkins and Elisha Duvall at the bottom. At some point in the past, someone removed Henry's signature from the bottom right where he actually "signed" the document. The area in which this vandal removed the signature has been neatly repaired with period paper. Document silked on verso reinforcing weak folds with light uneven toning. Despite these faults, the document is still boldly penned and bright. A fine addition to any autograph collection. Accompanied by COA from PSA/DNA.
