    Vermont Texas Land Company Stock Certificate. One partially printed page, 7.25" x 8", Bethel, January 9, 1837. Certificate No. 117 for one share with value of $100, issued to "Charles M Lamb of Tunbridge in the County of Orange and State of Vermont." Signed by N. Williams, George Lyman, and Julius Converse. Docketing on verso shows the share was transferred to Daniel Parish in August 1843.

    Converse was serving in the Vermont State Senate at the time he signs this certificate, and would later be governor of Vermont from 1872 to 1874. Little is known about the Vermont Texas Land Company, and the certificate is not listed in Streeter.

    Condition: Flattened folds, with light toning along folds. Ink from verso has bled through to front. Small amount of paper loss on lower right edge. Otherwise very fine.
