    Description

    Robert Morris Signed Bond North American Land Company April 18, 1795 Extremely Fine.
    Robert Morris, known as the "Financier of the Revolution," was one of the few to sign the Declaration of Independence, Articles of Confederation, and the Constitution. Morris was a great Colonial era financier, who also became Pennsylvania's first Senator. His North American Land Company owned thousands of square miles of land throughout many of the southern and mid-Atlantic colonies. Payment was not received quickly enough to pay off loans and make tax payments which eventually landed Morris in debtor's prison. It is also signed by Secretary James Marshall, brother of future Chief Justice John Marshall. A few small holes can be seen, as can a bit of ink erosion at the end of Morris' signature. These have little effect on the strong eye appeal of this rare and desirable piece.
