Lot 22

ADS, signed “R. T. Paine,” one page, 7 x 3, no date. Legal document addressed to Mr. Foles, in full: "In the Case Howland vs Briggs the half share of Byl which is fired for, is set forth in the Writ to be worth eighteen pounds & as the Dept. was defaulted it would doubtless be regular to make up Judgment for that sum; but as the said half share was sold but for £15—, the Judg't would have been ordered to be made up so by the Court if it had been mentioned to them, & as the creditor now desires it, it must be regular for you to make it up so, I should wait on you if I were not a little unwell & very busy." Double-matted and framed with a plaque and image of Paine to an overall size of 21.5 x 14.5. In fine condition, with ink erosion affecting one word of text.

Estimate: $400-$600
