Lot 27: Uncommon partly-printed vellum DS as president, signed "Z. Taylor," one page, 10.75 x 15, no date. Unissued scallop-topped ship's pass, boldly signed at the bottom by Taylor, and countersigned by Secretary of State John Clayton. The white wafer seal is intact. In fine condition, with intersecting folds and overall wrinkling. Any Taylor presidential document is quite uncommon, as he served only 16 months before he died suddenly on July 9, 1850.
