Title

Gaffney Receipt 1

Subject

A bill of expenses Mr. Haley gave to Mrs. Gaffney for their trip from Columbia to Clarksville.

Description

This item is a receipt drawn up by Mr. Haley and presented to Mrs. Gaffney at the conclusion of their trip from Columbia to Clarksville. The primary features of the document include the cost of feeding several ‘negros’ that traveled with Mr. Haley and Mrs. Gaffney throughout their vacation. Now, it is entirely likely that Mr. Haley is only charging Mrs. Gaffney for what he believes to be a fair share of the cost. However, Mrs. Gaffney’s expenses for her slaves amount to less than five percent of her total bill for her share of the trip. Their baggage transport cost more than the slaves’ food.
