Lot 22: Partly-printed vellum DS as president, signed "J. Tyler," one page, 11.75 x 15, September 26, 1842. Scalloped-top ship's pass issued for "the Schooner Sarah Ann of Newport, Richard S. Gough master or commander…mounted with two guns navigated with ten men to pass with her Company, Passengers, Goods and Merchandize without any hinderance, seisure or molestation." Boldly signed at the conclusion by President Tyler and countersigned by Secretary of State Daniel Webster. In very good condition, with intersecting folds (one vertical fold passing through the very last letter of the signature), and scattered foxing and staining. Tyler ship's papers are considered scarce, and this example is highlighted by an especially bold signature.
