    Scope and content

    Receipt book maintained by Donald James McFadden, containing the details of approximately 50 poultry sales made to various individuals, businesses, and organizations.

    Included receipts are dated between 8 October 1977 and 18 October 1979, and record the purchaser's information [Name and Address], date of transaction, and details of transaction [including amount, type, and base price per unit of items being sold and total purchase price]. Some receipts additionally record the seller's information ["D.J. McFadden, Rivers, Man."].

    Additionally includes two handwritten lists, one titled "1oz. @" [listing prices per ounce] on yellow paper stapled in to inner back cover, and one titled "Breeders On Hand June 22/79" [listing number of breeder toms and hens] written on inner back cover.

    Most receipts contain short handwritten notes providing additional context on poultry orders and deliveries, including marking if the bill has been paid or cancelled. Most of these notes have been initialed by Donald McFadden ["D.J.M."]; however, some have been initialed by his wife Margaret ["M.M."]. Some notes have not been initialed by anyone.
