    New Arkansas and Texas Land Company Grant, signed by trustees T. L. Ogden, D. Jackson and E. Curtis. One partially-printed page, 7.25" x 12.25", New York, April 29, 1833. Certificate No. 5096, awarding 4,017 6/7 acres to Sylvester Davis. Signed on the verso by Davis transferring the land to "Thos. Q. Hyde".

    This tract in West Texas was carved from the massive empresario grant awarded to John Charles Beales and Jose Manuel Royuela. Beales secured Royuela's shares, transferring the whole to the New Arkansas and Texas Land Company. A medical doctor by profession, Beales was a talented and energetic land speculator. The millions of acres he claimed were lost to him as they were granted by Mexico prior to the Texian Revolution.

    Condition: Flattened folds, chipping and some paper loss along edges; uneven left vertical side. Foxing throughout with staining and ink spotting.

    Reference: Streeter 1138.1

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
