A collection of 3 ledgers from the Smith family of Center Harbor, New Hampshire. Ledger

seam toward the heel on each side… Poor seaming not paid for at any price.” Ledger

are lists with names of local people, a list of their purchases, costs, repayments
and in some cases repayment made in kind. Ledger 3 has the name of Mrs. Jane Smith
on the inside page. This ledger has only several whole pages and few partial pages
that relate to the settling of debts and employment records of local employees in
the manufacture of stockings.
