Ammi Quint of Parsonfield, and Newington, N.H. used this ledger to keep track of his credits for work and the debts he owed.

Like many yeomen of the period, he was resourceful and able to do all kinds of work from bricklaying, shoe making, house painting, and farm work.

He had a beautiful handwriting style, and added this illustration of ships to the cover page of his account book.
