Manuscript DS, in Spanish, signed “Guillermo H. Steele,” three pages on two adjoining sheets, 8.5 x 12, February 1, 1835. Untranslated land grant on Sello Segundo letterhead, for one league of land signed at the conclusion by Steele. Reverse of second page bears a handwritten endorsement by M. D. Thomson attesting to the deed and signatures. Partial separations along intersecting folds, one fold through a single letter of signature, some old tape repairs along folds, scattered toning and foxing, as well as light creasing and edge wear, otherwise very good condition. The designation Sello segundo indicates that this copy of the document is a testimonio, the duplicate signed copy given to the owner as a duplicate original. Robertson's Colony grants are much more difficult to obtain than those for Austin's colonies. The Robert Davis Collection.
