Partly printed document on recto and verso of one long sheet, accomplished in manuscript and signed "Aaron Burr" in the lower margin of the recto and again on the verso, countersigned by others (see note) and with paper-covered wax seals, with an additional certification dated 28 November 1798 signed "A. Burr." The indenture 15 3/4 x 9 3/4 inches (41 x 25 cm); the certification on a slip 4 1/4 x 8 1/2 inches (11 x 22 cm). The indenture with old folds that have split at ends and with a few small punctures touching a few words, small losses to edges where roughly opened and elsewhere resulting in irregular edges but not affecting the text which is dark, remnants of old mounting.
This indenture leases land on Brannon Street (now Spring Street in Manhattan) from Burr to a Mathew Goul, who has signed the document in the lower margin along with Burr and two witnesses. The verso bears Burr's signed assignment of the lease to a James Martin in August 1797 and other docketing through 1833. The additional certification is a receipt of payment of rent from Goul in the hand of Martin, his right to collect the rent signed by Burr on the verso of this slip.
