In The Early Days Of The American Republic, The President Was A Relatively Accessible Figure. Any Citizen Could Shake The President’s Hand If He Were Willing To Stand In Line Long Enough At The Presidential “Levees� That Were Held Weekly By The First Three Presidents, And Thereafter On Special Occasions Such As New Year’s Day. Presidents Also Held Office Hours, Often Daily, When Citizens Low And High Might Sit In A Waiting Room, Send In Their Card Or A Note Stating Their Business, And Hope For A Few Minutes With The Chief Executive. This Tradition Continued Well After The Civil War, Until The Nation Grew Too Large And The President’s Schedule Too Complicated.


One Of The President’s More Mundane Duties In Those Early Days Was To Sign Certain Routine Documents Himself, In Order To Make Them Legal. Of Course This Continues For Important Documents Such As Congressional Bills And Foreign Treaties. But Early Presidents Signed Everything From Military Commissions To Ships’ Papers To Patents For Land Grants. And The Latter, In Those Days When The Federal Government Was Selling The Entire Frontier In Small Parcels To Individual Settlers, Became A Monumental Chore. The Flood Of Western Migration, Drawn By Vast Stretches Of Open Land At Reasonable Prices, Meant Thousands Of Individual Patents, As The Federal Deeds Were Called, Every Year.


By The Early 1830S, The Chore Had Finally Gotten Out Of Hand. In June 1832, The Commissioner Of The General Land Office Wrote To Congress That There Were More Than 10,500 Completed Land Patents Waiting The Signature Of President Andrew Jackson. Congress Passed A Law In March 1833 To Relieve This Burden, Authorizing The President To Appoint A Special Secretary To Sign Land Patents–In Essence To Legally Forge The President’s Signature. Jackson Therefore Became The Last President To Personally Sign Land Grants. If You See One On From A Later President, Offered As An “Authentic Signature,� You Now Know Better.
