Financial ledger volume, 1853-1859 [located at Annex], listing accounts for expenses of the music department, listing money paid to and spent by the music department; entries for years 1853-1854 are certified by P.S.

More than 50 years after its use by the University, the largely blank volume was used during early 20th century by Elise Mauldin Paget to record genealogical data of several related families who lived in the vicinity of Pendleton, S.C., a work she titled, "The Paternal Ancestry of Elise Mauldin Paget, wife of James Manchester Paget and daughter of Benjamin Franklin Mauldin and Mary Eliza Daniel Reed" [ca. 1920s?].
