Sale 38 Lot 92

JAMES WILSON (1742 - 1798) Signer of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, which he helped to frame, also a member of the Continental Congress. Good content partly-printed D.S. 1p. legal folio, Philadelphia, Oct. 19, 1790, an agreement between Wilson and signer ROBERT MORRIS in which Wilson agrees to pay Morris "Seventeen thousand seven hundred and two Livres Eight Sols Tournois". Countersigned by an associate of Morris, Garrett Cottringer. At the time, Morris was pursuing a vain attempt to corner the American tobacco market by selling the product to France, and was just getting into land speculation that would ultimately prove his ruin. Light toning, otherwise very good.
Estimate $ 300-400
