Note:  These handwritten entries were copied verbatim by me.  They came from a large leather bound book that was not microfilmed & could not be photocopied.  It appears that the accounting was conducted approximately every 6 months.  Note the seemingly sweet comment about Seth's "faithful service at the poor house" - this was an unusual comment as the others were strictly business like in manner throughout the volume Kim Curlin Wettroth
