About this Item

Sheriff of Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania. Partly-printed Document Signed, 1p, 17" X 22", Westmoreland County, PA, 1798 October 27. Very good. Slightly parted at some folds, but complete, clean and attractive. Interesting land deed in which Brady sells seven tracts of land (400 acres each) to Samuel Hollinworth for a total price of seventy dollars. Circular blind-embossed flute-edged paper seal present and completely unchipped. The printed text relates in typically convoluted legalese how Brady was acting on behalf of the county in selling off enormous land tracts that had once belonged to financiers Robert Morris and John Nicholson in order to satisfy their debts. Morris (1734-1806) was actually in debtors' prison when this particular deed was written, his massive land speculations having collapsed; and Nicholson (d. 1800), his partner in these land speculations, went to debtors' prison (where he died) in 1800.
