Lot 7: Partly-printed DS, signed "James Madison" as president and "Jas. Monroe" as secretary of state, one page, 15.75 x 9.75, November 11, 1813. President Madison appoints "Samuel Hart, of Pennsylvania…Collector under the act, entitled 'An act for the assessment and collection of Direct Taxes and Internal Duties,' passed on the 22d day of July, 1813." Boldly signed at the conclusion by President Madison and Secretary of State Monroe. The white paper seal affixed to the lower left remains intact with creases to a few points. In very good condition, with intersecting folds (a partial separation and small area of paper loss at the top of the central vertical fold), overall toning, and a few light stains; both signatures are superb, crisp examples.
