To become binding, colonial legal documents had to be signed and sealed. This partially ratified indenture between the Lords Proprietors never took effect because only six of the Proprietors agreed to it. The space for Sir Peter Colleton's signature and seal is blank.

If ratified, this 1674 agreement would have required each proprietor to supply 100 pounds sterling per year for supplies for their Carolina colony.
