Sale 38 Lot 515

A.L.S., 1p. 4to., Feb. 7, 1784, in which "Warren Harris", Surveyor General writes: "...Mr. Sanders Walker will pay you your fees for carrying my plat through your office. I hope the plat has got safe to you this time without a black list on it...I am informed by Mr. Dejernett the scheme was horrid and I think of the blackest hue that I ever seen. If the plat had passed as it was intended I should [ have] been cut out of the land and perhaps Mr. Gorham might get a piece by it. Your affidavit that the plat was not defaced in any part in your office will much oblige me as I want to see who is the enemy that he may know the reward of his labors...". Minor foxing, the bottom fold has a clean, nearly invisible split that has previously been well repaired from the verso, else very good.
Estimate $ 100-150
