23rd President. Partly-printed document signed (DS) “Benj. Harrison” AS PRESIDENT, 15.75 x 19.5, Washington, D.C., November 11, 1890. President Harrison appoints “George W. Mcelroy…to the grade of Passed Assistant Engineer with the relative rank of Lieutenant Junior Grade in the service of the United States….” Countersigned by Secretary of Navy Benjamin F. Tracy.

Very nice signature. Expected folds to vellum with some mounting remnants at edges. A most attractive format.
