Description

    Thomas Danforth Autograph Document Signed "Tho: Danforth". One page, April 2, 1659, n.p. [Massachusetts]. This is an agreement for work "to be completely finished before the lst of August next In consideration whereof the said Thomas Danforth & Edward Micholson do covent with the said Thomas Call to pay & sattisfie [?] them or their Assignee the full sum of sixteen pounds & ten shill". The agreement specifies that six pounds could be paid in "Indian corns [?] & the remainder ten pounds & ten shill. in English goods."

    Thomas Danforth (1622-1699) served in a minor position in the Massachusetts Bay Colony government from 1659 through 1678; he later served as deputy governor of the colony at the time of the notorious Salem witch trials which lasted from 1692-1693. Arthur Miller's play the Crucible portrays the character Thomas Danforth as pompous and self-interested. This document is matted to an overall size of 10" x 12". Age-toned and near fine.
