About this collection

The bulk of the entries in this handwritten ledger book date from 1846 and 1847 and are arranged chronologically, offering a day-by-day account of the individuals who transacted business with McBee Sons and Co. The items purchased were mainly household goods such as fabric and sewing supplies or paper, food items such as salt and molasses, and items of clothing such as shoes and hats; charges for services such as ‘drayage,’ or fees for shipping goods to other cities, were also recorded.
