Scope and Contents
An entry of April 10, 1821 indicates that O.W. Eichelberger of Baltimore received $374.66 from Evans & Iglehart for an account of Macdonald & Ridgely. The receipt book is particularly interesting because it contains signatures of Johns Hopkins, Baltimore merchant and founder of Johns Hopkins University. The signature of Gerard T. Hopkins, uncle of Johns, is also included.
Signatures of Annapolis merchants include T & B Harrison, R. Ridgely, Marcus Dennison, and J. Smith. John Wilmot, the Athenian Society, John Gregg & Co., and Henry Myers are among the signatures from Baltimore.
