Shoe merchant's cash journal, 1761 February 1 - 1789 March 15.
1 v. ; 36 cm.
Entries are not entirely chronological, as the shoemaker kept most of his records by family, entering several transactions under the name of the head of household, and running a line through the account when that group of items was settled. Families, therefore, may have several account listings.
Cash journal entries include not only the shoemaker's trade accounts, but also the money he made on hauling goods (he had an ox and cart which were rented out), on lot clearing and other farm work. Purchases of goods are also entered. From journal entries it appears that his name was Richard Tenney, a resident of Rowley, Mass., near Newburyport. Prices are expressed in pounds, shillings, pence, in the earlier entries, and later shift to "paper dollers." Inserted between journal pages are loose slips in the same writing.
The period of history covered by this journal includes the American Revolution. Economics, local history and genealogical researchers, especially in the New England area, should find it a good source of information.
