Description:

Guardian and manager of the estate of a young man (presumably) named WILLIAM NEAL, the extend of whose holdings and business dealings suggest a Southern plantation origin. ADS, 2pp (single leaf, both sides), 22" X 17", n.p., 27 August 1829 through 1 August 1831. Very good. Bit of minor age toning, with modest separations along one fold -- overall quite bold and extremely attractive, accomplished on a high-quality heavy stock. Across both pages, in a huge and neat cursive, is written "Dr. Estate of William Neal in account with James M. Connell Guardian of William Neal." Fascinating summation from this young gentleman's account book, with each page divided into columns. Each page is divided in half, with each half containing a slim column at left for the date, a large center column for the description of the payment or sale, and a slim column at right for the amount. A delightful range of transactions, both monies taken in and paid out, are recorded. Top of first column notes: "I have had valued to me. on the 9th June 1830 three negroes to wit one Girl Biddy valued at three hundred Dollars one Girl Delia valued at Two hundred and seventy five Dollars and one Boy Peter Branch valued at Two hundred and sixty two Dollars and fifty cents." Further down on same column, an intriguing line item records a payment "To BM Burch time lost by negro." Next column over begins with a "Memorandum of Property received by me and receipted to BM Patteson for 1829": "Seven negro men viz. Jacob, Ned, Peter, Phillip, Thomas, Randal, and Harman, Ten negro Boys viz. Paschal, Peter Branch, Burwell, Renard, George, David, Hercules, Charles, Joseph, and James, Eight negro Woman viz. Anna, Miller, Hannah, Dolly, Sally, Grace, Am'ny, and Louisa, six Young Woman. Eight Young Girls." -- a sizeable number of slaves (39) suitable to a plantation -- followed by "Eleven Head of Horses Seventy five head of Sheep Small Stock of Hoggs." Further down the same column is recorded the January 23, 1830 "Sale of negro Girl Beck sold under an execution" for $335 and a line-by-line listing for what appears to be the "hire" (renting) of ten male and female slaves for amounts ranging from $32 to $75. Neal must have been a young man, for amounts paid to "Tuition" are recorded. Signed boldly by Connell at the conclusion, together with his title, "Guardian of William Neal." An insightful look into the financial affairs of a young man of means in the antebellum period. Quite displayable and quite uncommon. Bookseller Inventory #
