Like his eldest brother John Rutledge (1739-1800), Edward studied law in London and returned to Charleston, where he was admitted to the bar in January of 1773. Here, he has signed a directive for the sheriffs of South Carolina to arrest "Sarah Naley" by order of King George III. Naley stood accused of "trespass[ing]" and other offenses by Thomas Dyall. Rutledge's signature appears at lower right and near center on verso.
Toning and scattered areas of spots, with archival strengthening at folds.
