Lot 189: Partly-printed DS, signed "P. Henry," one page, 14.5 x 18, August 20, 1785. As governor of Virginia, Henry grants John Sulsen a "certain Tract or parcel of Land, containing Three hundred & Seventy one Acres...being in the County of Monongalia." Neatly signed at the conclusion by Henry. The paper seal affixed to the lower left remains intact. Professionally silked on both sides and restored to very good condition, with intersecting folds, several areas of paper loss affecting the body of the document, and general staining and soiling (none of these flaws affecting the signature).
