Click on the link to the William Franklin Appointment to read more about the history of our last royal governor and to see the manuscript, letter of transmittal from the Crown to Governor Olden, and full transcriptions of both documents. This is the first colonial governor’s commission to be posted to the “Appointments and Oaths of Office” area of the State Archives’ Documentary Treasures site.
