On offer is a remarkable historical journal with many dates the earliest of which is 1825. It begins with the heading: "A bill of the Delawrae River", and lists what research suggests to be stops and business along the the Delaware River waterway. There are hundreds of names, with the dates and amounts collected from each individual. Some coded references. There are also mentions of loans, the nature of the loans and when satisfied. Though a primitive work there are numerous references to Moses L. Ogden as his family was prominent to the Delaware area from pre-Revolutionary times. We believe besides some mentions of the lumber purchases and sales that Mr. Ogden collected taxes. Delaware historians will have a grand time completing the research on this journal. Book measures 4" x 6.5", is leatherbound (very dry) and the inner pages are linen. Overall condition is good. Most of the 34 leaves are clean and clear, some age-toning. ; Manuscript; 24mo - over 5" - 5¾" tall; HANDWRITTEN, MANUSCRIPT, DOCUMENT, LETTER, AUTOGRAPH, DIARY, JOURNAL, LOG, KEEPSAKE, WRITER, HAND WRITTEN, DOCUMENTS, SIGNED, LETTERS, MANUSCRIPTS, HISTORICAL, HOLOGRAPH, WRITERS, DIARIES, JOURNALS, LOGS, AUTOGRAPHS, PERSONAL, MEMOIR, MEMORIAL, PERSONAL HISTORY, AMERICANA, CANALS, CANAL, LIFTS, LOCKS, NAVAL, WATER, RIVERS, PORTS, BOATING, TIDES, MARYLAND, DELAWARE RIVER, DE, MD, TAXES, LEDGER
