[Denver]: 1913-1916.  leaves. Original calf covers, manuscript cover title "Household Expenses." Light wear. Contents clean. Very good. Item #138
Household expense accounts kept by an unnamed woman in Denver. Covering the period from January 1913 to July 1916, the volume contains a monthly expense report over the course of three and a half years, noting money both paid and received. Expenses include a subscription to the Rocky Mountain News, car fare to various locations, purchases at Joslin Dry Goods, the milkman, the ashman, the washwoman, lawnmowing, dues at the Searchlight Club, sundry clothes or accessories such as gloves or handkerchiefs, dressmaking, and other standard household activities. Moneys received are always from members of the same family -- James, Mary, and Bessie Thompson. As the amounts are relatively consistent, it is possible that this is rental income or board of some kind. An interesting daily record of accounts.
