Scope and Content Note

This series consists of a bound volume listing running totals of payments made to employees engaged in the construction of the new State Capitol building. It lists the entry number (sequential beginning with 1, with gaps), surname, and amount paid. However, the register does not indicate whether these are whole dollar amounts, nor does it explain the purpose of payment. Certain names are repeated with great frequency throughout the volume, perhaps indicating that these are payments to members of a particular work group.
