Lot 282: ADS signed as chief justice, "J. Marshall," one page, 7.75 x 5, August 22, 1829. Document regarding a real estate transaction. In part: "I have agreed with Mr. George Johnson to cancel the contract I have made with him for the sale and purchase of the tract of land…I will give him a lease for the land for his life, with the same covenants as in the old lease." In very good condition, with intersecting folds with small separations, and scattered foxing and toning. An uncommon and highly desirable document, especially as many of Marshall's most prominent cases as both lawyer and justice concerned land and land disputes.
