Description: Journal of work done on an unknown plantation, perhaps in Brunswick or Greensville County, Virginia, between January 3-June 16, 1853 and June 15-July 1, 1857. Notes on weather are given. The book includes an inventory of slaves in 1864 with their ages and in some cases their birth days recorded. There are inventories of livestock and implements, undated, but probably for 1853. There is a record of slave marriages for 1857 and births and deaths for 1857-1861, and a record of physician's visits to the slaves. Loose pages with the book appear to include a list of slaves with their birth years [?] from 1816 to 1857 and several sheets bearing the prayers of an unidentified individual. Journal notes were kept in a printed volume entitled "Plantation and Farm Instruction, Regulation, Record, Inventory and Account Book" (Richmond, Va.: J. W. Randolph, 1852). Interior front cover printed with other publications by J. W. Randolph; newspaper clippings on cow diseases, crop prices, fruit culture (from the Baltimore Weekly Sun), and card of Gordon W. Jones, M.D., Falmouth, Virginia.
