The first volume contains an account for servants' wages, 1815, and for others hired to work on Gibbs' Long Island, New York, farm. John B. Davis was the overseer. This volume also contains an inventory of the farm in 1830. From the back end of this volume is a calendar of sowing, notes when blossoms appeared, a record of the harvest each year, plus household accounts in 1836, and cash paid, 1837-1838. The second volume, entitled Daybook and Journal, contains an 1813 inventory of Real Estate in Newport, Boston and Mariah, New York, owned by Gibbs, and an inventory of debts and notes. Internal evidence suggests that Gibbs was a part owner of the Enfield Distillery. The final volume contains an 1820 inventory of the stock and farming utensils at Sunswick, his farm in Astoria, a list of provisions for the farm, 1820-1821, labor accounts, records of produce, fowls and dairy products sold, daybook entries, 1821-1824, and a "Transactions Journal" kept by the overseer. The name Oliver Wolcott appears numerous times throughout the volumes
