Description

Signer of the Declaration of Independence from Virginia (1732–1794). Lee served as President of the Continental Congress, yet opposed the Constitution because it lacked a bill of rights. He served in the Senate and resigned after the Bill of Rights was added to the Constitution.

Third-person autograph document signed (ADS), signed within the text, “Richard Henry Lee” one page both sides, 8.5x 2.5, third-person autograph partial legal document, in part: “George Jeffries during his natural life and the lives of Sarah his wife and Alexander Jeffries his son one hundred and twenty three acres of land beginning at a white oak…to a chestnut tree on a ridge…George Jeffries or Sarah or Alexander Jeffries shall well and truly pay or cause to be paid and performed the unto and covenants above mentioned…trouble or molestation of him the said Richard Henry Lee, his heirs or assigns…”

The document is presented within double-sided glass and hangs on a beautiful felt matting beneath an image of Lee.  Please note:  there is one screw missing in the frame and would need to be replaced to properly hang the autographed document.  We could ship it simply in its double-sided frame but the overall presentation is quite nice.
