Lot 182: ALS signed "Josiah Bartlett," one page, 7.25 x 9, July 16, 1791. Letter to Massachusetts Governor John Hancock, written while serving as governor of New Hampshire. In full: "I have the honor of receiving yours of the 11th of June last enclosing a Copy of an act of the Legislature of Massachusetts 'for Regulating the fishery in Connecticut River' and shall take the first opportunity to lay the same before the Legislature of this State." Intersecting folds, some mild staining, paper loss to one corner tip, and toned adhesive remnants to one edge, otherwise fine condition. A fabulous association between two of New England's most prominent signers.
