Ledger belonging to Steven Goodell of Stamford, Conn, for the years 1828-1851.

Stamford, Conn 1828, 1831, 183 8.25 x 6.5, leather, unpag (approx 3/4" thick). Covers extremely well worn, rubbed, etc., ink notes, spine cover torn, hinges and text block cracked, soiling, staining, tears, loose signatures, detached page, creasing. Entries are on lined pages with the name of each man who worked for him and/or rented or bought items from him. Some of the items Goodell sold: sheep and buffalo skins, bass wood boards, hemlock for shingles, turkey, mackerel, wool, cider. Another source of income was renting out pasture land, horses, oxen and wagons. He hired men to butcher hogs and beef, work on the hiway (sic), plowing, mending fences. The handwriting is legible for the most part but he does write out the words phonetically so the spelling does vary. On occasion, other locations are mentioned, the most legible being Williamstown (Mass). Dates aren't always in sequence and the accounting isn't always for a full year. Additionally, there are later pencil notes, some dated 1864 and 1865, which lists someone's expenditures. A nice look at early Stamford history. Sold as is.
