DescriptionThomas Mifflin Document Signed "Tho Mifflin". One vellum page, 15.5" x 13", April 12, 1792, [Philadelphia] Pennsylvania. With blind embossed paper seal of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania in the upper left corner above Mifflin's bold signature. Docketing on verso. Some wrinkling, else fine.
This document transfers "a certain Tract of land called 'Hillsborough' Situate in Guilford Township Franklin County" to Patrick Vance. Thomas Mifflin was a member of Pennsylvania's Provincial Assembly. He served two terms in the Continental Congress and served in the Pennsylvania General Assembly. He was a delegate to the United States Constitutional Convention in 1787, as well as a signer of the Constitution. A member of the Supreme Executive Council of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, he was elected on November 5, 1788, president of the Council, replacing Benjamin Franklin. Mifflin was unanimously reelected to the presidency on November 11, 1789. He presided over the committee that wrote Pennsylvania's 1790 State Constitution. That document did away with the Executive Council, replacing it with a single governor. On December 21, 1790 Mifflin became the last president of Pennsylvania and the first governor of the Commonwealth.
