Title

Gaffney Receipt 4

Subject

A receipt from the Gaffney family records.

Description

This item is a receipt received by Mr. Haley for the fare of himself, Mr. and Mrs. Gaffney, and the other members of their party. The item is written by Mary W. Donahue. This item is not completely transcribed, mostly due to some awkward lettering in the first word of the item and a few towards the end. However, it very clearly denotes the prices for the Negroes Mr. Haley and the party traveled with, which was $2.00. Considering the party is likely still traveling with the four slaves documented in other receipts, the price for each comes to $ 0.50.
