Timothy Matlack. The Declaration as we know it today is what is called an "engrossed copy". After Jefferson's rough draft was edited by Adams and Franklin first, then by the Convention, a final version was agreed upon. The document with all the editing was in Jefferson's handwriting, but an official final draft had to be made. The edited version was given to Timothy Matlack and he wrote the Declaration in larger letters and on a larger piece of paper to be the official draft to go to the printer.
