It lists the customer name, date, cost, and services (such as sharpening a plow or repairing a wagon wheel or garden hoe). The accounts for 1884-1885 concern cotton sales. Also included are a few recipes from newspapers and an 1898 church program for the Mill District Sunday School Association Clifton Church. There are modern day notebook pages taped over some pages in the book. On these are handwritten transcripts of letters from an unidentified father to his son in Savannah, Georgia regarding the sale of slaves on a plantation.
