Title

Daybook of Benjamin Franklin Thomas: Accounting Pages

Description

These pages appear to be a record of accounting for Benjamin Franklin Thomas. They also include miscellaneous items. In this photo, an account of money spent on miscellaneous items can be seen. For example, one can see that Benjamin Franklin Thomas bought a tobacco plug for $.68. The top half of the page seen on the left shows a record, one can assume, of how much money was spent per day, beginning on June 8.

Benjamin Franklin Thomas worked as an elephant tamer for the Van Amburgh Circus in the mid nineteenth-century. He wrote in his daybook regularly when he travelled.
