    Lovely Post-Revolutionary War Boston Ledger Listing Account Entries For Paul Revere. With entry dates from 1783 to 1795, 272 pages, bound in vellum, ledger format, folio (8.25" x 12.5"), spine absent, portion of vellum missing from rear board, boards worn and soiled and warped, internal contents tight and bright, good condition. A great bound manuscript account ledger, possibly from a private bank, in Boston, with numerous accounts including those of patriot, Paul Revere. During this time Revere was a merchant and silversmith and his entry contains a long list of credits to his account: "...proceeds of Goods rec'd of him and sold to Russell & Clap...for 2 pair Plated Candle Sticks...of Russell & Clap for a Clock...of T. Pons for plated Goods...". Revere is also mentioned in six other places in connection with debts and credits received indirectly through his business with the establishment keeping the ledger. Others mentioned are General Alexander Campbell, Connecticut patriot Ebenezer Huntington, and New England's prosperous Saltonstall family. There are also entries for Boston merchant Frederick William Geyer, who had been among the dozens of Tories named in the Massachusetts Banishment Act of 1778. By the time covered in this ledger, Geyer had returned to America after other former royalists met with success in suing to have their confiscated property returned to them.
