Samson Occom, receipts and expenses, 1761

ms-number761290

abstractOccom records various receipts and expenses collected and incurred in travel to and from Montauk and Oneida in the year 1761.

handwritingHandwriting is largely clear and legible; however, the condition of the paper and ink make it difficult-to-impossible to decipher some of Occom's original hand.

paperSeveral small sheets folded into a booklet and bound with thread (visible on 10 verso and 11 recto) are in good-to-poor condition, with light-to-heavy staining, fading and wear. Outer pages are in worse condition than inner pages, and one recto/verso is detached from the booklet. The pages that would be nine verso and 10 recto are uncut at the top and so have not been scanned. Damage to the paper has resulted in some loss of text.

inkBrown ink varies in intensity.

noteworthyAn editor, likely 19th-century, has overwritten sections and/or added notes in black ink. These edits have not been transcribed. Names of people and places that are illegible or uncertain have been left untagged. In instances where Occom's intention regarding a word is uncertain, the word has been left unmodified in the modernized transcription. In several instances, it is uncertain as to whether a name refers to a person or place; these names have been left untagged. It is possible, however, that these uncertain names refer to inns or taverns and the names of their owners.
