             Biographical note 
             John Moylan was the son of a successful Irish merchant who immigrated to America along with many of his brothers. He established a textile and clothing business in Lexington, Kentucky in 1792. Moylan also served as a clothier to the Continental Army for numerous years, which eventually led him to close the store. After closing the store Moyland returned to Europe, where he later died in England.

             Scope and Contents note 
             The Moylan ledger consists of business transactions that took place in Moylan's store during the years, 1792-1794. Each patron had a page that lists items purchased as well as remaining balance owed. In most cases where a balance is owed the ledger indicates the date the balance is due. The writing is faded, but a few of the items still legible are hymn books, stationary, hats, blankets, and wine. Toward the back of the ledger, there are pages pertaining to a voyage to New Orleans; the items he purchased there to resell at his store in Lexington.
