Scope and Content Note

Daily account of receipts and expenditures at the prison.

Receipts are state appropriations and returns due to overcharges. Each expenditure entry gives voucher number, name of payee, itemized account of goods or services furnished, and total payment. Moneys were paid out for the monthly payroll, expenses of the prison, materials for the mining and manufacture of iron, transportation of convicts, and other expenditures. Starting in July 1852 most accounts are no longer itemized but described "Bill as per Invoice Book." This refers to the Invoice Book, 1851-1854.
