Description


Signer of the Declaration of Independence who, following the Revolution, devoted himself almost entirely to Georgia state politics (1749-1804). Partly-printed DS, signed “Geo. Walton,” one page, 7.75 x 9.5, March 1785. Legal document signed twice by Walton as chief justice of Georgia, in part: "The Defendant Felix De Miklaszewicz is hereby required personally, or by his Attorney, to be and appear before the Justices of the Superior Court…to answer the Plaintiffs Demands, in an Action of Debt and so forth, to his Damage Twenty Pounds Specie." Signed on the front by Walton, and again endorsed on the reverse to approve the judgment ordering payment of £1,150. In very good to fine condition, with ink erosion to the first letter of one of the Walton signatures, and archival tape repairs to separated horizontal folds. Felix Miklaszewicz was a Lithuanian nobleman who had joined the American Revolution as a privateer, settling in Liberty County, Georgia, before moving to South Carolina. From the Collection of Dr. Lawrence E. Miller.
