MADISON, JAMES Ship's passport signed as President.
Washington: 13 July 1816. Engraved document on vellum with two large vignettes and with a scalloped upper edge, accomplished in manuscript and signed in full "James Madison" as President, countersigned by James Monroe as Secretary of State and with wafer seal. 14 1/2 x 10 inches (37 x 25 cm); nicely framed. An attractive document, some possible minor restoration along folds, Madison's signature quite bold, unexamined out of frame.
A fine example of the elegantly engraved passports signed in combination by Madison and Monroe, this for the ship Union of Boston, embellished with fine engravings of a lighthouse and ship at full sail.
