    William Penn Authorization for the Sale of Oley Signed by a James Logan, this document defines the layout for the town of Oley near Philadelphia. There had been much confusion about the land here, a township in Berks County, Pennsylvania and one of the earliest settlements there. Oley had been settled by Germans, French Huguenots and Friends, but none had any agreement or surveys for their plots. This land transfer agreement was meant to clear that up for some. Nicely framed here with a large medallion-like wax seal with considerable detail. Overall this piece measures 33" x 24" as framed. The document has been folded to show the name of the signer and to attach the seal with ribbon, which has long since given way, to the document. Condition for this 1742 document is very good, with consideration to its age.
