John A. Macdonald signed 1858 3-part Ejectment Summons Lot 1 in our auction Saturday 16th May 2020
“At the time of signing this document, Macdonald was the joint premier of the Province of Canada, and Premier of Canada West, as well as keeping, it appears, his post as Attorney General of Canada West. He also maintained a law practice throughout the 1850’s and 1860’s.
