    1858 Philadelphia Quaker Indenture A beautiful, manuscript true copy of an 1830 indenture between Charles P. Fox and his sister, Eliza M. P. Tunis, regarding land they inherited from their mother, Mary Fox, who was the granddaughter of Israel Pemberton (1685-1754), a prominent Quaker and one of the wealthiest men of his time. Charles relinquishes his half-share to his sister in return for one silver dollar. Numerous lots in Philadelphia are mentioned including: Callowhill and Tenth; Wood and Eleventh; Second between High and Chestnut; and Elm between Second and Third. The top is scalloped (or actually, indented) and both the green seal and ribbon are intact. 22.75" x 26.5", ideal for display. It would be interesting to research what these lots are worth today.
