Lot 6: Partly-printed vellum DS, signed "Th: Jefferson" as president and "James Madison" as secretary of state, one page, 10 x 15, no date but circa 1801-1809. Unissued scallop-top ship's pass, left blank and signed in advance by President Jefferson and Secretary of State Madison. The white paper seal affixed to the lower left remains fully intact with crisp points. In fine condition, with intersecting folds (one vertical fold passing through a single letter of Madison's signature), scattered creases, and wrinkling to the lower portion. An exceedingly desirable pairing of founding fathers in an attractive format.
