SOLD SOLD SOLD 1832 1855 Thomas Green Clemson (ADS) and South Carolina Gov. F. W. Pickens (ADS)
Appears that Governor Pickens and Mr. Clemson RE: Clemson University had original financial dealings in 1832 as evidenced by writing at bottom of front. Above that there is a debt owed to Mr. Clemson in 1851; with Gov. Pickens’ signature with an overwrite. Above that and to the right Governor Pickens acknowledges the debt; also 1851, with his signature and two cosigner signatures. At upper left turned at a right angle is 1855 debt is a loan due from Governor Pickens to Mr. Clemson; signed by Mr. Clemson. At the top is an 1855 notation on amounts “signed” by Grundin and Matthews Co. (SIC?). There are also other interesting signatures of relatives as co-signers for security. Specifically:J. C. Pickens (believe correct, not positive) and E. Clark Pickens. It is one sheet 6.625 by 8.625 inches. In good condition it has one vertical and three horizontal folds. I scanned the front with added scans of front for easier viewing. Also scanned back.
