Lot 159: Ornately engraved partly-printed DS, signed "Wm. H. Clark," one page, 10 x 5.75, May 3, 1854.

Stranahan is the holder of One Share of Capital Stock." Signed at the conclusion by William H. Clark as president of the company and countersigned by R. H. Robinson as its secretary. In very good condition, with show-through from a tape repair to expected cancellation cuts to the body, as well as distracting show-through from docketing to the reverse concerning the transfer of the stock.
