Handwritten volume with entries for travelers, most from East Tennessee, 1850-1851. Categories include: names (appear to have been signed by the travelers); residence; destination; bill of fare; time of leaving; and a running total of the number of passengers (802+). One note of ‘bill of fair’ says ‘By S. C. H.’ Notes under bill of fare/fair indicate Number of diets, horses, notes re: stage passenger, etc. Believed to be the ledger of a tavern in East Tennessee (Grainger County?), which catered to travelers. May have been stage coach, ferry boat, or a combination. The volume also includes one account page for S. W. Senter, 1848; and a number of pages with entries for “First Day Sale” and “Second Day Sale.” These entries list names, items bought, and amount due.
