Dr. Vincent delivered several babies, pulled teeth, treated a burned child and had a patient (William Bradley) die of tuberculosis. The entries aren't very detailed, mainly that he went to see someone. He lists the patients' names, one per page, who he saw and what he was paid for the visit. On occasion he traded his services for a horse or corn. The doctor usually bought needed items for his patients like bees, a heifer, ducks, hemlock logs, various fruits and vegetables, yarn, venison.
