Identifier: 00-2011-65-0

Scope and Contents

The Anson Wildman Daybook (2011-65-0) is primarily a record of accounts of a general store. Most of the pages are filled with names of costumers, what they purchased, and the price. Inside the front cover has a list of a few places that Anson may have boarded. There are drawings throughout the book as well as what appears to be spelling and math practice. The last two pages of the book appear to a description of a trial in Litchfield. Names mentioned are: Mr. Gould (a witness), Julius Deming, Geo Webster (the defendant), Geo Carrington, and (the plaintiff). The trial is about Geo Webster stealing an egg from Geo Carrington, bringing it home, and then returning the egg. The jury finds Geo Webster guilty. Currently housed in 3A Box 15.
