Matted Engraved Print showing the state seal and state motto of Michigan and printed signatures of Wm. Woodbridge and A.S. Porter.

np (Lansing?) nd (1840s) Approximately 9.5 x 7.5, mat is 11 x 11, print is toned -- mainly from being in non-acid free mat, staining in margins, mat is stained with light spotting and toning. Written in pencil on the print is "1844." However, Woodbridge was governor in 1840-41, so perhaps that date is in error. Porter was mayor of Detroit in 1838 and a U.S. senator 1840-1845. Translated from Latin the state motto reads, "If you seek a pleasant peninsula look about you."
