About this Item

25 folio sheets of paper, bound together with silk ribbon on top margin with titlepage and blank end paper (actual total of 27 pages). Text lists in neatly written ink entries, recipients, dates and amounts of all disbursements. Written on rectos only. Complete. VG, easily legible, unneatly folded up. DeBevoise was mayor of Long Island City (later Queens County) New York in 1870s amd 1880s. This document, fascinating in itself for listing how much and to whom the Mayor paid funds, is even more interesting as Mayor De Bevoise was put on trial in late 1870s and charged with embezzling from the treasury of the city. There are no stamps or notations on this document, no indication of it's being used in a trial as evidence. Appears to be in the handwriting of one single secretary and is possibly a contemporary copy as the entries do not show the expected subtle differences produced by daily notation. paperback ephemera.
