Description: Autographs
1729 William Dummer Governour & Commander in Chief Signed Rare Massachusetts-Bay Military Appointment
WILLIAM DUMMER (1677-1761). Province of Massachusetts Bay Lieutenant Governor for 14 years (1716-1730), including from 1723 to 1728 when he acted as Governor.
November 1, 1729-Dated Early Colonial Era, Partly-Printed Document Signed, "W(illia)m Dummer" as Governor, Province of the Massachusetts Bay, Military Appointment, Very Fine. An original Printed Military Commission, measures 16.5" x 13" on period laid paper, folds and reinforced on the blank reverse with achival tape, whole and complete. Document where, "William Dummer, Esqr; Lieutenant Governour & Commander in Chief, in and over His Majesty's Province of the Massachusetts-Bay in New-England" appoints John Spanford as "Lieutenant & Commanding Officer." Separations at folds have been repaired on verso with archival tape. Embossed paper seal of the state affixed in upper left. Docket on verso. This is a nice item for display being well printed in deep black. William Dummer is remembered for his role in leading the Colony during what is sometimes called "Dummer's War," which was fought between the British Colonies of northeastern North America, against a loose coalition of Native American Indian tribes in what is now New Hampshire, Maine, New Brunswick, and Nova Scotia. A rare example that is boldly printed and complete, with its original Enbossed Paper and Wax Seal fully intact at upper left.
