1864 February 5

Abstract:

A receipt by Annie E. Wall recording partial payment for a team of mules, 5 February 1864.

Scope and Contents note

The collection consists of a single receipt, recording the payment of $150 by D.A. Boyd to Wall as partial payment for a team of mules, dated 5 February 1864. The remainder of the sum owed--$600--appears to have been due within a month of 8 February, although the wording is not clear. The high price for the team suggests that this transaction took place in the Confederacy, where inflation had reached ruinous levels by early 1864.
