.Hewes, Joseph

Signer from North Carolina. Hewes signs a private legal agreement and settlement of a debt August 10, 1778. Generally in very good condition with a long vertical fold running between the first and last name. There is a small hole from ink burn at the bottom of the “s". A few words have ink burn through the paper. These have been professionally backed with blank infill. Folds have also been professionally repaired. The document is signed by two other parties to the agreement and endorsed by the County Sheriff on the back. Hewes material seldom hits the autograph market. Ken Rendell’s chapter on Signers in History Comes To Life groups Hewes as one the dozen rarest Signers below Lynch and Gwinnett.
