Abstract:

Records the routine of a farm in early 19th century upstate New York. Such activities as harvesting rye and corn, haying, boarding cattle and horses, selling farm goods in nearby villages and New York City, maintaining farm equipment, and marketing fruit and milk are featured in a combination of short diary entries and accounts. Also included are payments made to hired hands for their work and carefully kept notes about money invested in and then made on products. In addition, the manuscript provides insight into slavery and slave trading in New York State. Arthur notes slaves participating in farm work along with hired hands. On October 6, 1804, Arthur sold Cato for $250 to Major Prevost and on April 15, 1805, he entered into an agreement with Lewis Stebbin to buy Betty for $90. On March 13, 1805, Arthur records selling his farm to William Tabor for $15,000, payable in four installments. Arthur still resided on the farm when the diary closed on December 31, 1805.
