About this Item

This is a 6 inch by 7-1/2 inch single printed sheet, with spaces left to be filled in with the details. I will spell out the printed content and put the filled-in information in parentheses. "This is to certify, that (Jonathan Swift) of the town of (Andover) in the county of (Essex) and District of Massachusetts, hath paid the duty of (three) dollars upon a (two) wheel carriage, called a (Chair), owned by (him), having (framed ?ports and a) top, to be drawn by (one) horse, for the conveyance of (?more) person; for the year to end on the 30th of September 179(7). (Wm. Farnham) Collecter of the Revenue, (Second) Division, Survey, No. (2) (District) Massachusetts. (September 27th) 179(6).". Wm. Farnham has signed his name to a corner of the other side of the sheet. The sheet is very clean and is still crisp, with a very small closed tear to one edge. It has been folded into 4 sections.
