Lot 30: Partly-printed DS as president, signed "J. Tyler," one page, 21.5 x 16.25, no date but circa 1844–1845. Unissued four-language ship's paper, left blank and signed in advance by President Tyler and Secretary of State John C. Calhoun. The white paper seal affixed to the center remains fully intact. In very good to fine condition, with a few small splits and separations to folds. These documents were often left blank and signed in advance before being sent out to American ports, where they were filled out as needed. Tyler's signature is an especially strong example given its large size and bold ink, and the addition of the important statesman John C. Calhoun enhances this document even further.
