ca January 1845 – 1846
This is actually 1 piece of paper. It is folded in the middle to use like a notebook.
I have learned from these and other papers/articles that, if nothing else, ol’ George Young was a businessman and was hard-pressed to part with his money.
List of Bought Goods and Receipt for $10.66 made out to (Dr.?) Thomas Loyd from M.P. & R. N. Penland,

It is one sheet of paper, writing on both sides. The extra picture is for clarity on the ‘side-ways’ writing on the back of the paper.
Instruction from Jas. ______ to Thomas Lloid about money he sends to Daniel Carte[r] via John George[s]

John George[s]; Daniel Carte[r]; Jas. _____; Thomas Lloid
- I cannot find the torn side. I do not know if it has slipped into the stack elsewhere if I never had it.
- John George[s] is spelled John George and John Georges.
- Daniel Carte[r] does not include the ‘r’ since it is on the edge that was torn. I am going on the assumption (which, yes, I should never do but am doing it anyway) that his name is “Carter”.
- Jas.’s last name has been torn away.
