Lot 14

Manuscript DS, signed “George R,” one page both sides, 9.5 x 14.5, February 18, 1805. King George appoints Alexander Forbes as "Lieutenant Governor of the District of Gaspe and Inspector of the Trade and Fisheries upon the Coast of Labrador in Our Province of Lower Canada." Boldly signed in the upper left by the king, and countersigned at the conclusion, "Camden." The seal affixed to the left side remains fully intact. In very good to fine condition, with light overall creasing. By this time the king had begun to go blind and suffer from mental illness, thus his rather erratic signature.

Estimate: $200-$400
