Autograph President James Monroe On 1821 Ohio Land Grant To William Little

1821 Land Grant
SIGNED BY PRESIDENT JAMES MONROE (1758-1831)
Fifth US President (1817-1825)
And
Josiah Meigs (1757-1822)
Commissioner of the General Land Office
--
Delaware, Ohio Land Office
Grant of 80 Acres to William Little

  • 16-3/8 x 10" printed stiff parchment paper with hand-inked entries.
  • Once folded in half and in thirds vertically and then again in thirds horizontally.
  • Starburst paper covering the embossed red wax seal of the General Land Office (with fairly good definition to the embossing).
  • Back with a hand-written filing notation from the Recorder's Office dated 1835.

States that William Little has deposited with the General land Office a certificate from the Delaware, Ohio Land Office stating that he had made full payment for 80 acres of the land made available by the Act of Congress of the 24th of April 1820:

...the West half of the North West quarter of Section Number ten in Township Number five, of Range Number fifteen in the district of Delaware and State of Ohio, Containing Eighty Acres (South of the Base Line)

The grant is dated September 12, 1821, and identified as Certificate No. 59 recorded in Vol. A, page 59.

Josiah Meigs was important in his own right. He was an college professor and President, practiced law in Bermuda, was appointed Surveyor General by President James Madison in 1812, and became Commissioner of the United State General land Office in 1814. He was a pioneer in meteorology, instituting the first system of daily weather observation at land offices.

CONDITION: Very Good. Light uniform age-yellowing, shading slightly at the edges. Slight edge wear and light crease to the upper right corner, creases around the seal. The signatures have a bit of the beading seen in inking on slick paper like this parchment, but the ink is dark. The back has browning at one crease. The wax seal is intact (not cracked), and the embossing has quite a bit of detail. The folds are deep but sturdy (and can be relaxed for display).

We use accepted bookseller's grading standards: Fine, Near Fine, Very Good, Good, Fair, Poor. We grade items conservatively.

SHIPPING: The document will be shipped folded, as it has apparently been stored for a long, long time. That way, the creases can gradually be properly relaxed for eventual display. We do our best to combine shipping for multiple items.
