1887 Power of Attorney

Some of the most interesting documents come from  boxes labelled miscellaneous.  This document is a general power of attorney prepared out of Massachusetts.  As the plaintiff was out of state in this civil suit, he hired a local attorney to act on his behalf.  Notice the wax seal still affixed to the bottom of the paper. 1887-misc-box-ma-power-of-attorney
