John Tyler Signed Presidential Four-Language Ship’s Paper Also Signed by “Daniel Webster” as Secretary of State
JOHN TYLER (1790-1862). 10th President of the United States & Also Signed by “DANIEL WEBSTER” as Secretary of State.
December 31, 1842-Dated. Partially-Printed Document Signed, “J. Tyler” as President, and “Danl Webster” as Secretary of State, measuring a very large 20.75” x 16”, 1 page, Choice Fine to Very Fine. This is a Four-Language Whaling Ship’s Passport for the ship “Canada” with “William H. Lipham” Master or Commander of the burden... “545 tons or thereabouts, lying at present in the port of New Bedford bound for Indian Ocean and laden with Provisions, Stores and Utensils for a whaling voyage.”

This historic original Document is very well printed and easily readable, having deep black text and strong brown manuscript portions. Some expected light tone along the fold lines and a few very tiny fold wear holes are nominal. It has a very vivid overall appearance but for the extreme bottom mergin edge which has some folds, small splits and modest tone which can be matted out when framed for display. The large deep bold brown signatures of JOHN TYLER is about 2” long and quite tall, while Daniel Webster’s is about 3” long. Quite scarce having this Dual Signature combination and overall in a very collectible quality.
