Document from 1700
A friend from East St. Louis, Riley Owens, asked me to see what I could find out about a velum document he had that was dated 1700. This is Alvan Bregman the Rare Book Librarian at the U of I looking it over. He was actually able to read the Old English. Bottom line is it's not valuable but an interesting old legal document.
