Wadsworth, Bradley and Co. Account Book


 Collection — Box: 1
Identifier: 00-1973-76-12

Scope and Contents

The Wadsworth, Bradley & Co. Account Book (1973-76-12) is a large accounting book kept by the Wadsworth, Bradley & Co. papermaking company. The book was maintained from 1812 to 1821. The entries are cryptic; they contain the name of another person, a customer perhaps, and then a series of numbers and the price. Research at the historical society has found that this company maintained paper mills and made paper, but what these numbers mean is unsure. Currently housed in 3B Box 12.
