Abstract:

Ledger, 1785 Apr.-1789 Dec., receipt books, 1788 Aug.-1796 Jan., and letter book, 1796-1810, kept by Andrew and Henry Onderdonk, proprietors of the Onderdonk Paper Mill located in Hempstead, Long Island.

Ledger, 1785-1789, contains accounts recording sales of paper by the Onderdonks, along with purchases of rags and sundries, accounts with individual papermakers and others employed at the mill, and unspecified cash transactions. Entries include individual accounts with many printers, bookbinders, and merchants from New York and neighboring states; including the printers Francis Childs, Archibald MacLean, Thomas Greenleaf, Hugh Gaine, and John Fenno; bookbinders and booksellers Robert Hodge, Thomas Allen, Edward Wier, and John Reid; and merchants Mott & Deal, Samuel Mott, Benjamin Tredwell, Thomas Pearsall & Son, and many others. Also recorded is an account with the government of New York State for the purchase of "money paper" for the printing of paper currency. Receipt books running consecutively from Aug., 1788 to Jan. 1796, contain receipts for deliveries of writing, wrapping, and printing paper to numerous merchants and tradesmen in New York, including Hugh Gaine, Samuel Loudon, Valentine Seamen, Philip Freneau, Solomon Townsend, et. al. Volume for July, 1790-December, 1792, is a combined sales and receipt book listing amounts, kinds and prices of paper delivered to various printers, binders, merchants, etc.; as well as receipts for money paid by them for various purposes, memoranda, and lists of paper sent down by the ship Lark. Letterbook, 1796-1810, contains copies of letters sent by merchants William and Benjamin Onderdonk from New York City and North Hempstead to various merchants and associates in the United States and abroad. Letters pertain to orders for and shipments of a wide range of goods, including paper, textiles, leather, etc.; as well as loans of cash, bonds, notes, insurance policies, and other financial transactions. Included are letters addressed to: Hector & John Scott, of London; Loring Andrew & Co., printers; Peter Faber; Thomas, Andrew & Penniman, booksellers, Albany, New York; Peter Sailly, Plattsburgh, New York; Samuel Tredwell; Moses Higgins; David Buel; Miles Washburn, Otsego, New York; Noah Webster; and others. Of additional note are the inclusion of a number of pencil sketches of houses and human figures and fragments of fictional writing evidently made by a young person who employed the letter book and ledger as scrap paper some time during the nineteenth century.
