The account book records his itemized income for executing will and civil judgments, delivering subpoenas, and issuing summons and militia warrants; it also documents his personal or small business transactions for the purchase and sale of various goods, including lumber, foodstuffs, cloth, and other supplies. Both court and personal transactions include the date and nature of the transaction, and the name of the person with whom Eliphalet had interacted.
