[First note in Folder 1-1]
Note 1801

The notes below are transcribed from images taken of folders from Box 1 of the E.H. Marion Cronk Fonds, 2006-1, held at the Canadian Quaker Archives, Newmarket, ON and posted here with permission. Thanks to Carm Foster and Doug Smith for their diligence in transcribing these notes.
Copyright: Candian Quaker Archives, 2008
Original spelling retained. The writing was typical of quick business scribble and often was a challenge to decifer. Contact me if you have suggestions. Often a part of the bearers name was torn out creating a hole to confirm that a debt was paid and the note was now worthless. Some notes were countersigned and given to a third party to collect the debt. These notes were created at a time when currency was in short supply and debts were often settled after lumber or animals were sold or crops were harvested.

These notes are mostly from in and around Prince Edward County but range from Port Trent, Kingston and Montreal.  
Folders 1 to 6 are grouped by decade and involve a mix of people. Folder 7 contains notes involving Gideon Bowerman (1775-1810) who was active in the lumber trade up and down the St Lawrence. He died in May 1810 from fever contracted while rafting on the St Lawrence and folder 8 contains the notes that his executors (brothers) used to try collect on his debts. See the accounts of his death on the epidemic web page.
 
The oldest note is Image 1-7 41, 42 at Holdiman [Haldimand] and dated June 22th 1799. Happy hunting.

The business notes were put in groups of 2 or 3 or more and one image was taken of the front side and a second image was taken of the back side. Thus both sides are listed in the transcriptions for each note.

Lex? Date 10th July 1829
The Plan of Survey enclosed to me in your letter of the 6th Instant has been laid before the Council, with the Report of the Surveyor General ; and on the 2nd Instant the following answer was given to your Petition, viz
“It does not appear from the Report of the Surveyor General of the 22nd June last, that the Petitioner has established a case requiring the intervention of the Government”

The Report of the Surveyor General of the 22nd June, is, “that having examined the several Plans of the Township of Hallowell in the Surveyor General’s Office, viz, the Quebec Plan & Mr Alen Aitken’s, & Mr ? Rider’s, Plan, who was employed to complete the said Township in 1840 it appears that on all the said Plans the Line of Division between Lot No 18 in the 1st Concession on West lake belonging to the Petitioner, and Lot No 1 in the 1st Concession of the Military Tract, belonging to Henry Young, adjoining thereto, the said Line has been laid down as a direct Line and perpendicular to the front of the said Lake, and not as Wm Elmore has returned it on his Plan in the first instance, neither as Wm T Conger and Elmore have returned it on their Plan in the Second instance, neither have they”

Note 1 – side 2
“they brought forward any Testimony to prove that the Line operated upon by them is a Line that was run by Mr Aitken, or by any authorized Surveyor, and, further, by the report on their Plan, it doth not appear thay they have commenced their operation on the Western Boundary Line of the 1st Concession, from which the Lots are numbered, at , or near to the outlet of West Lake into Lake Ontario, and there ( as the 4th Clause of the Act Cap. XIV passed 27th November 1812 directs) should have taken a true Meridian Line by observation of the course of the said Line and have transferred it, by another Meridian Line, by observation made on the East side of Lot No 18 in the 1st Concession; and then, had they reported that the Courses of the said Lines coincided, it would have been proof positive that the first operation by Mr Elmore, and the Second operation by Messrs Conger and Elmore, were correct, and the Line by Mr Aitken, who has not, however made any Report of the same to the Surveyor General’s office – and the Surveyor General therefore submits , that you will not lose a single Acre of Land thereby, in whatever manner this difficulty may hereafter be determined ( altho you state you will lose nearly 80 Acres) for whatever number of Acres may apparently at present be cut off from the East side of your”

Note 1 – side 3

Dear Brother & Sister Nephew & Neice
I take this opportunity to write to you a few lines to let you know how I am I have been quite sick this winter with a kind of chill fever so that I was confined
pretty much to my bed for two weeks or more but through the blessing of Divine Providence I am mow much better so that I can get about pretty well. I am living with my son William and keeping house for him He has built him a snug log house and we get along tolerably comfortable although I am pretty feeble
Levi & Nancy live within one quarter of a mile of us They and their family are all pretty well. William’s health is pretty good The rest of our friends as far as I know are generally pretty well I have been informed by some of my friends that that money which was paid to William Eldridge after Deborah’s death rightfully belongs to me and that it can be collected with interest and I wish Brother to write me, how much money he let Edridge have after Deborah’s death and also to send me certified copies of any and all reciepts that Eldridge gave him for that money. I also want a certified copy of the will from the Surrogate’s office
and any information that you can give me in regard to it, I wish you to do it I understand that Eldridge is abundantly able and if the money is mine I want to

have it and if is not mine I wish to know whose it rightfully is for I do not think that Eldridge ought to have it I wish an answer to this immediately
Please direct the letter to Mary Jennings

Write about William’s Children as we are anxious to hear how they are doing
Give my love to all enquiring friends and reserve a good share to yourselves
