    Texas Politicians Autograph Group of Five Documents Fine group of five documents signed by historic figures in Texas history including the last President of Texas Anson Jones, manuscript document signed, "Anson Jones" as President of Texas, 7.5" x 9.5", Washington, Texas, October 2, 1845 approving an invoice for $4.19 for "work done for office"; Edward Burleson, Vice President of the Republic of Texas, manuscript document signed, 7.25" x 3.75", October, 1848, a promissory note, issued to him; one of Stephen Austin's "Old 300," Bartlet Sims, manuscript document signed, 8.25" x 4.25", Galveston, August, 7, 1843, a promissory note for $82.21 "to be paid in cotton on or before the first day of January 1844," signature crossed out; Texas Secretary of State Louis McLane, partly-printed document signed, 4.75" x 2.25", Washington, March 29, 1834, a check for $24 made payable to his wife; an unidentified manuscript document, 2.25" x 2" noting that "Mr. Castleman in his Estate are indebted to Col. Austin more than the amount of the within order, October 27, 1832." Worthy of further research. Overall the condition is excellent. PSA/DNA lacks sufficient comparable examples to render an opinion on this item. While we believe it to be authentic as described, it is thus sold without certification.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
