Declaration of Independence Signer James Wilson Autograph

wilson 1wilson 2


Here is a wonderful autograph by a Declaration of Independence signer from Pennsylvania (1742–1798), James Wilson, and one of only six men who signed both the Declaration and the US Constitution. This is a desirable ink endorsement signature, “Wilson,” crisply penned on the reverse of a partly-printed document, one page, 8.25” x 6.75”, July 28, 1770. The document concerns a debt settlement between James Brotherton and Joseph Cook. Clerical financial notations dated October 1770 appear above Wilson’s signature. In very good condition, with partial separations to folds and some toning and chipping to edges. A certificate of authenticity will accompany this piece
