Description
 
A small ledger regarding the expenses, both material and labor, for the construction of an unidentified building along the Nine Mile Creek (also spelled Ninemile Creek) in South Trenton, NY. The owner of the building or the purpose of the building is never specified. The ledger starts with a list of materials purchased for the construction, such as lumber, stone and shingles between April 1844 and September 1844. After a few blank pages of particular interest are a number of notes of agreements  between the owner and various contractors for various aspects of construction with detailed specifications and agreed to payments. These notes start in June 1844 and end in May 1845, and deal with everything from the construction of the cellar and chimney, to the installment of doors and painting. Four of these notes have been pinned into the ledger. The last section is a list of days in August and September of 1844 that two men, Humphrey and Jones, worked on the site. Nearly half filled (not including pinned in notes). Marble covers with pasted on title. Measures 6" x 4".
