The ledger is 8" W x 9 5/8" H x ½" T, hard cover, with lined and 252 pre-numbered pages; it is in quite good condition, but some of the pages have been torn out and lost, probably by the author. It appears to be mostly in the hand of Wilbur Kelley Baker. The accounts are various, being clamming accounts for the clamming operation at the J. K. Baker Wharf in Dennis Port, schooner accounts, etc.
