Ledger of J.C. Jones of Centralia, Chesterfield County, Virginia for the years 1866-1868. Itemized entries include charges for flour, salt, molasses, barrels of fish, etc., as well as for sawing and wood hauling.
Part of the ledger has water damage and some pages are not fully legible.
Clippings of recipes and advice columns are glued in the front and back of the ledger and empty space on some of the ledger pages has been used for school exercises and drawings, most likely by a child.
Ledger needs to be cleaned of mold before it can be made available to researchers.
The fragile nature of this material may limit handling.
