1794 Carpenter's Bill To The Town Of Boston. Manuscript Document headed "Town of Boston to Thomas Dawes," Boston, March 4, 1794, 8¼ x 7½ in. An invoice for work done by Dawes for the town; the amounts due are given in pounds and shillings. One entry is "To building a back & pointing in the workhouse." He mentioned repairs done "in Mr. Whitwell's Room," and several repairs "in the Hall." Expenses include mortar and brick and the help of another man and his "boy." Others include, "mending 6 backs of Chimneys front of the Kitchen Ovan…laying harth in the Hall…mending the brick work…& pointing in all the rooms" and "laying a new harth to the Kitchen Ovan." The document is split at top fold and partially at bottom fold, and there is a small area of paper loss, affecting two words, still legible, plus edge chips and toning. Still a wonderful, historical document.
Estimated Value $500 - 750.

Realized $288
