This two page land grant is held together at the bottom by the ribbon from which the Georgia State Seal is attached. It has creases where it was folded for delivery and expected aging of paper and ink. The pages have only very light wear otherwise. This is an 1895 land grant to a tract of a land in Camden County Georgia. The grant is signed by Governor W(illiam) Y(ates) Atkinson, Secretary of State Allen Candler, Candler would succeed Atkinson as Governor; and by Samuel D. Carter, who is receiving the grant and would become a member of the Georgia Supreme Court. The two Atkinsons may have been kin in some way but I can find no confirmation for that idea. These land grants are attractive for display, and this one contains three important Georgia autographs. ; Wax Seal of Georgia attached, plat map; 4to 11" - 13" tall; 2 pages; Signed by Collection of Signatures
