Partly-printed DS, signed as Governor of Tennessee, one page, 12.5 x 15.5, September 19, 1827. Land grant issued to Charles F. Gudman for “one hundred and fifty acres lying…on Cumberland Mountain waters of Daddys creek known by the name of big Brady or Basses creek.” Nicely signed at the conclusion by Houston and countersigned by the secretary Daniel Graham. In very good condition, with intersecting folds, one through a single letter of signature, scattered toning, a bit heavier at edges, slight paper loss at intersection of folds, and light show-through from docketing on reverse. The white seal is worn but intact, and Houston’s signature measures almost five inches long. A well-preserved example from Houston’s brief stint as Tennessee governor. The Robert Davis Collection.
