    George Washington and Thomas Jefferson Signatures excised from a presidential document, 6" x 3", [ca. 1763], n.p. President Washington has signed "Go: Washington" in large letters above "By the President". Below, Jefferson has signed "Th: Jefferson". "Countersigned" has been written in another hand next to Jefferson's signature.

    Affixed by seal wax along the left margin is a remnant, likely excised from another document, which reads, ". . . jour de May 1794". This is most likely not the date that this document was signed because Jefferson only served as the nation's first secretary of state from March 1790 through December of 1793. Afterwards, he returned to Monticello to enjoy life, at least for a few years, as a planter. So in May 1794, while Washington was serving his fifth year as president, Jefferson was in Virginia, no longer a direct participant in Washington's administration.

    The signatures have been affixed to a backing of the same size. On the verso are mounting remnants with printed identification which reads, "Autographs of Geo Washington and Thomas Jefferson." Lightly toned and in fine condition.
