MOSES AUSTIN - PROMISSORY NOTE SIGNED 02/11/1802:

He signs a demand promissory note arranging for payment in 142½ pounds of lead. Framed to 10½x8½.

Promissory Note signed: "M. Austin", 1 page, 7¼x5¼, affixed to a larger off-white sheet and framed to an overall size of 10½x8½. Mine A Burton, 1802 February 11. In full: "Please pay Mr. Jos. Pratt One Hundred & forty two pounds & half of lead out of the Lead in your hands of mine and this order shall be your Discharge for the same." Moses Austin (1761-1821), the father of Texas pioneer Stephen F.

His business failed, and in 1798 Austin and his family moved to what is now Missouri, then Spanish territory. (Austin had purchased the land from Spain, but when he signed this note it was actually in French territory under a secret Franco-Spanish treaty, soon to be acquired by the United States in the Louisiana Purchase of 1803).

PRIME MINISTER DAVID BEN-GURION (ISRAEL) - TYPESCRIPT SIGNED:

He signs a 9-page typed account of events leading up to the 1956 Suez War. A manuscript of historical interest!

The text emphasizes the threat posed to Israel by its Arab neighbors and the ineffectiveness of the United Nations in forestalling that threat. On the day that Israel declared independence, May 14, 1948, David Ben-Gurion (1886-1973) became the Chairman of the Provisional State Council, a post he held until May 17th, when Chaim Weizmann became Head of the Council and Ben-Gurion became Prime Minister. Ben-Gurion was Israeli Prime Minister from May 17, 1948 to December 7, 1953 and from November 2, 1955 to June 21, 1963.
