An Act concerning the seal of the Commonwealth and the seal of the Secretary of State.
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the Commonwealth of Kentucky:
SEC. 1. The seal of the Commonwealth of Kentucky shall have upon it the device, two friends embracing each other, with the words "Commonwealth of Kentucky" over their heads, and around about them the words, "United we Stand, Divided we Fall."
SEC. 2. The seal of this Commonwealth shall be kept by the Secretary of State; and he shall also keep a seal of office, which shall have upon it the device, the American Eagle, in the center, with the words around the same, "Commonwealth of Kentucky, Office of the Secretary of State."
SEC. 3. The official acts of the Governor of the Commonwealth shall be attested by the Secretary of State, under the seal of the Commonwealth. The official acts of the Secretary of State shall be attested by himself, under his official seal, and the seal of the Commonwealth, may also be used by the Secretary of State to attest any certificate by either himself or the Governor in cases where it may be shown to him that such attestation by said seal is required to entitle such certificate or any facts or documents thereby certified to be admitted to record or used as evidence, or otherwise, in any other State or country; but the use of the seal of the Commonwealth shall not dispense with the necessity for the use of the seal of the Secretary of State.
SEC. 4. The compensation for affixing the seal of the Commonwealth, where the same is required by law, shall be two dollars; but no compensation shall be allowed or paid for affixing the seal of the Commonwealth to a commission issued to any public officer of this State, or to a grant (Note: referring to a land grant) or to a pardon of a felony.
