Colonial New York Governor Rip Van Dam Document

(RIP VAN DAM), New York Colonial Governor.

c. 1700s, Manuscript Document, written in brown ink on fine-laid paper, Unsigned, no date, New York City, 12.25" x 8," Fine. This document details a complaint between Van Dam and a Peter White, and reads in part: "Rip Van Dam ... complains of Peter White late of the City of New York ... Where the said Peter ... was indebted unto the said Rip [Van Dam] in two pounds fifteen shillings and three pence lawful money of New York for divers good wares & merchandise ..." Based on the content, apparently White was to assume the debt and pay Van Dam, but refused, and so Van Dam brought a suit for five pounds. The document is lightly toned with normal folds, and has been expertly repaired and restored. Aside from some minor edge wear, the document remains in fine condition.
