Both items are in very good condition, with minor signs of age. The first sewn with green ribbon, and both with the customary stamps, seals and other appurtenances. Two interesting and unusual indentures, showing the spread of the nineteenth-century British Empire. ONE: On six sides of two 46 x 30.5 cm. skins, each folded once, and bound one in the other with ribbon. 'Between Eugenia Susannah FitzRoy of Roehampton Widow of George Henry Fitzroy Esquire of the first part Edward St. Aubyn of Devonport in the County of Devon Esquire of the second part and The Most Noble William Henry Duke of Grafton and Frederick Barclay Chapman of Stonehouse Court Stonehouse in the County of Gloucester a Major in Her Majesty's Army of the third part.' The fifth page carries the signatures of the four, with four seals in red wax on green ribbon, together with those of four witnesses, as well as the following: 'The Schedule to which the forgoing Indenture refers | Shantung Road Lot 273 Title Deed No. 266 | Land with Houses - 1 Mow and 3 Fun | Foochow or Shause Road Lot 317 Title Deed No. 310 | Land with Houses 1 Mow 2 Fun | Pekin or Soochow Creek Road Lot 150 Title Deed No. 144 | Land with House 4 Mow and 5 Fun | Pootung Land 15 Mow Lot 632 Title C.
