DescriptionRichard Henry Lee Free Frank Address Panel Signed "R. H. Lee." Measuring 5" x 3.25", the panel has been removed from a larger document. Addressed to "Doctor William Shipper Jun / Philadelphia." Undated, but faintly postmarked March 30 with the year 1785 appearing on the left edge. Lee (1732-1794) is best known for his motion in the Second Continental Congress calling for the colonies' independence from Great Britain. His legendary resolution of June 1776 led to the United States Declaration of Independence, of which he was a signer. He served as president of the Continental Congress (if the date on the address panel is correct, Lee free franked this letter as president) for one term and was a senator from Virginia.

As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
