Content Description

The Philo Beardslee account book (2011-124-0) is an account book used by Philoe Beardslee to keep accounts at, what appears, a general store. The book appears to have exchanged hands a few times, however. In the front of the book there is an inscription “Adeline Johnson New Town March, 1848,” but this is after the account book was originally used. Almost the first half of the book is very wrinkled and has a yellow crust on the pages which may be from use as a scrapbook. If this is true, all the items that were pasted into the book has been remove. Other indications of other owners include child-like drawnings found in the back of the book, and a letter written into the book from a Julia to of New Town to her counsin Cynthia. The item is currently house in oversized boxes on shelf 3B in box 9.
