Hunt ledger, 1796 Jan. 2-1796 Oct. 1

The Hunt ledger contains a list of patrons of Hunt's store. Followed each name is a list of what was purchased. The right hand column contains each customer's remaining balance at the store. The majority of the names have been crossed out or have an "x" beside them, which would mean that Hunt received a payment in full from that particular patron. Based on entries in the ledger, Hunt sold linen, whiskey, horses, silk, ribbon, and sugar. Occasionally Hunt would take an item in trade; to note this, Hunt would list the traded item underneath the name of the patron.
