    William Henry Harrison Check Signed. One page, 6" x 2.5", Cincinnati, June 5, 1813, authorizing payment of $3 drawn on the Miami Exporting Company, and signed "William Henry Harrison". The Miami Exporting Company was the first Ohio bank chartered by the state legislature in 1803. In 1813, Harrison was a U.S. military commander in Tecumseh's War, winning major victories in Indiana and Ohio. He served as the ninth president of the U.S. from March 4, 1841, until his death thirty days later on April 4, 1841, the shortest term of any president. He was likely a victim of the common cold. This check, along with an engraving (3.5" x 5") of Harrison and a memorial ribbon (3" x 5.5") with his likeness and final words, is matted and framed to an overall size of 11.5" x 12". The check is age-toned and fine.
