Unknown : Pennsylvania general store ledger volumes, 1794-1848

Two ledger volumes. The first is daily accounts kept by what looks like a Carlisle (probably Pennsylvania) general store from 1794-1796. The first several pages appear to be farm accounts, with records of sale of flour by the barrel and of wages paid to reapers. The second volume, 1832-1848, also appears to be from a general store, with some personal accounts at the end, including an itemization of the costs of sending a son, Robert, to "Dick College" and a list of texts purchased, 1836-1842.
