President John Adams signed land grant, dated 8 July 1799, with a bold, clear ''John Adams'' signature in black ink to verso of 2pp. document. Countersigned by Secretary of State Timothy Pickering, grant gives more than a dozen Revolutionary War veterans ''titles to certain lands lying Northwest of the River Ohio, between the Little Miami and Sciota.'' With extensive handwritten notes detailing the exact partitions of the property. Document on 2pp., front and verso, measures 18'' x 20.5'' and is nicely and cleverly framed twice; the smaller frame housing the document measures 23.25'' x 26'' and opens on a hinge, so that both sides of the document can be viewed. This frame is then attached to a larger frame measuring 41.5'' x 36''. The back of the document displays very bold signatures of both President John Adams and Secretary of State Timothy Pickering. Original blindstamped seal intact. Creasing and separation to fold intersections with two small stains in the lowermost third of the document, else near fine. Some bumping to frame corners and edges, else frames are near fine.
