This is a very cool document. This is a pre-printed document from the Governor of Tennessee, Aaron V. Brown. Aaron Venable[1] Brown (August 15, 1795 – March 8, 1859) was an American politician. He served as the 11th Governor of Tennessee from 1845 to 1847, and as United States Postmaster General from 1857 until his death in 1859. He also served three terms in the United States House of Representatives, from 1839 to 1845. During the Mexican–American War, Brown's statewide call for 2,800 volunteers was answered by over 30,000, helping solidify the state's reputation as the "Volunteer State. This document is appointing men to be responsible for the raising of funds to build monuments honoring George Washington and Andrew Jackson. It is appointing men in Jefferson County to take in the funds. It is pre-printed with the blanks filled in in brown ink. It is dated from July of 1846 and is also signed by the secretary of state of Tennessee along the bottom. The paper is very brittle but display well. It is backed by a piece of paper that was folded and used as an envelope. You can see the Nashville, Tennessee postmark and is address to B.T. Neuman in Dandridge, Tennessee. It has some archival tape holding together one of the seams. What a neat early Tennessee document signed by Governor Brown.
