Scope and content

Receipt and payment accounts, annual until that of 1700-1702, followed by periodic accounts for the years: 1702-1704, 1704-1709, 1709-1717, 1717-1720 and 1720-1724. Receipts appear to be mainly fines in discharge of those unwilling of serve city offices. Includes audited account of the treasurer for bridges, 1720-1724. The accounts from 1724 are less carefully laid out and the records degenerates into memoranda of receipts and payments, 1732-1733.
