Description: ABRAHAM CLARK
(1726 - 1794) American politician, a New Jersey Signer of the Declaration of Independence and a member of Congress. Scarce A.D.S. 'Abra: Clark', 1p. 8vo., [Elizabethtown, New Jersey], Feb. 5, 1790. While serving on the town committee of his hometown of Elizabethtown, Clarks pens an agreement regarding a land dispute. In part: '...At a meeting of the Eliz. Town Committee it is agreed that Saml. Potter & Stephen Crane Esquires are to pay the Committee for the . . . Town in defending their Right Against the General Proprietor, the Sum of One hundred pounds, in consideration whereof the said Committee are to give them a Town Deed for the Land which they formerly sold . . . Containing Two hundred & Eighty Acres...' Boldly signed by Clark at conclusion, also by fellow committee members William Harriman, James Wade, Samuel Potter, and Stephen Crane. Some foxed spots at upper and lower left corners, light show-through of some writing on verso. Blank integral leaf is expertly inset into a larger leaf, affecting nothing: the signed page could simply be excised for framing. Overall very good to near fine.

Shipments are sent via FedEx and DHL (for most overseas shipments) or FedEx Ground at the auctioneer's option. Due to complications from the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we will ship with USPS Priority Mail only if the buyer submits their request to us in writing and accepts responsibility for delayed shipments. Signature is always required, unless other arrangements are made. Handling and shipping charges will be added to the invoice in one entry. Buyers should be aware that large, framed, fragile or odd shaped items can incur substantial shipping and packing charges. International shipments are invoiced by DIMENSIONAL weight, not the item weight. Please contact us for an estimate before bidding NOTE: Large, heavy or bulky items may not be shipped by the auctioneer - arrangements for shipping of these items via a third-party shipper may be arranged through the auction house. Customers who supply their own courier account number will still be charged a handling fee. Please allow 2-3 weeks for shipments after receipt of payment due to the high volume of packages being shipped.
