    Description

    John Tyler Signed Ship's Passport. Partially printed vellum DS "John Tyler", one page, 11.75" x 15", July 6, 1841. Ship's passport for "the Barque Barclay of Westport... mounted with no guns navigated with 22 men..." Countersigned by Daniel Webster as Secretary of State. Holograph engrossment is gently faded, but remains legible, with both signatures remaining pronounced. Mounted to a slightly larger board, the document is very clean with paper seal affixed with red wax at lower left. Document is near fine and would benefit from being removed from mount.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
