    William H. Harrison Autograph Document Signed "Wm. H. Harrison/a d c," one page, 7.5" x 2.5". Greeneville, August 10, 1795. In full, to the Commissary, "For the Delawares one hundred & sixty five pounds of beef & flour - & one Hundred and Ten Gills of Whiskey." In 1794, General "Mad Anthony" Wayne and his army, including his 20-year-old aide-de-camp William H. Harrison, were victorious against a confederacy of Indian tribes in the Battle of Fallen Timbers. The resulting Treaty of Greenville was signed at Fort Greenville on August 3, 1795, just one week before this document was handwritten and signed. Officially, it was "A Treaty of Peace between the United States of America and the Tribes of Indians called the called the Wyandots, Delawares, Shawanoes, Ottawas, Chipewas, Putawatimes, Miamis, Eel-river, Weeas, Kickapoos, Piankashaws, and Kaskaskias." By the treaty, the United States agreed to deliver to the tribes upon signing "a quantity of goods to the value of twenty thousand dollars...and henceforward every year useful goods, suited to the circumstances of the Indians of the value of nine thousand five hundred dollars...To the Delawares, the amount of one thousand dollars..." This document represents one of the first deliveries to an Indian tribe, party to the treaty, of useful goods, i.e. beef, flour, and whiskey. Very fine condition. Ex. Henry E. Luhrs Collection.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
