Abstract:

This account book commences with the younger Samuel Seabury's arrival in Edinburgh, Scotland, on 29 July 1783 and records monies received, both from his father and from Edinburgh publisher William Creech (1745-1815), monies lent, board, laundry, and other personal expenses, purchases of books, clothing, stationery supplies, medicines, and an ear trumpet. It continues with entries for 1786 at New London and sporadic, brief entries of patients visited and services rendered, some with charges. Among items entered in unidentified hands are a lengthy inventory of household furnishings and tools, several very short miscellaneous lists, one-half page of entries entitled "North Carolina 1819," and what appears to be a series of payments from boarders. Several names recur, including William Creech, London bookseller John Rivington (1720-1792), Jonathan and Jared Starr, Stephen Notts ( - ), George Rogers ( - ), Mr. Blakeslee, and Thomas Allen (1755-1842) of Fishers Island, N.Y.
