This volume (163 pages) contains the financial records of the New Hampshire Charitable Society. Records include annual reports by the society's treasurers (June 1823-June 1841) and itemized accounts of monies paid and received (June 11, 1813-May 10, 1841).
The accounts list the society's incoming donations and outgoing expenditures. The society mainly made payments to individuals, and sometimes received donations from the estates of deceased persons. Between 1823 and 1841, the group's treasurers presented annual financial reports, which were approved by a small committee. Most reports are dated at Strafford, New Hampshire. Other notes pertain to procedures for lending and otherwise disbursing money (August 15, 1815, page 6) and to money raised for specific expenses. Pages 82-89 contain the "Rules and by Laws of the New Hampshire Charitable Society," which regard the society's officers, members, and finances.
