Lot 21: Desirable manuscript DS, signed "Willm. Henry Harrison" and "W. H. H.," one page both sides, 7.75 x 12.75, February 12, 1802. Order issued to "the Surveyor appointed to survey the publick lands in the County of St. Clair," listing fifteen tracts of land of either 100 or 400 acres each. Signed at the conclusion by Harrison, who writes and initials a five-line statement below: "The Donation tracts are not to be be surveyed until plan upon which they are to be located is fixed by Congress—the other tracts to be located & surveyed as heretofore portioned." In fine condition, with expected document wear. A fantastic twice-signed piece.
