Author: Benjamin Cole (recto)
Date: September 23, 1728
Place: [Swansea, Massachusetts]
Endorsement(s): None

Abstract: A memorandum dated 23 September 1728, showing itemized expenditures and income of the town of Swansea for 1728, signed by treasurer Benjamin Cole. The figures on this sheet include payments to the town totaling £15 made by individuals who had refused to serve as constables. The account shows a balance of £34 3s 4p. On the reverse are memoranda pertaining to several distinct issues entertained at recent town meetings, including 1) the "granting of Town debt," detailed on the recto, and 2) Massachusetts governor William Burnet's salary. There is also a draft memorandum, presumably later than the above texts and in a distinct hand, describing surveys for a highway across Toweset Neck.

Physical Description: Ink on paper; 2 pages (20 x 16 cm.) on 1 sheet.

Number: MSN/COL 2718-8
