P.T. Barnum Signed Land Conveyance

Fantastic partially printed document signed as a Land conveyance for property in Bridgeport, CT. dated "September 25, 1886", and signed by P.T. Barnum as "PT Barnum". 8.5" x 14". The document represents the sale of land in Bridgeport by PT Barnum to Theodore Wolfman. Accompanied by two additional loan recording documents that appear as two individual loans which Wolfman took out from Barnum the following year in 1887. One for $2800, with Five percent interest, the other for $800 for six percent interest. The verso of these shows a handwritten record of payment dates. Each is 8.25" x 7"

In the early 1850s, Barnum began investing to develop East Bridgeport, Connecticut, and speculated in Real Estate among his many business ventures. He died only a few years after the date on these documents.
