English essayist, poet and statesman; with Richard Steele produced the non-political Spectator.
Document Signed, one page, quarto, Whitehall, January 29, 1717/18. Addison, signing on the verso of an account of Henry Worsley’s extraordinary expenses on behalf of the King, makes a two-line statement authorizing payment. The lower left corner has been torn off, affecting a number of words in the account. The tear extends from slightly below the middle of the sheet to the bottom of the page, but since Addison’s statement is well above the tear it is not in any way affected; otherwise fine.
