Invoice: Miller, Prince to Nicholas Brown & Co.; September 13, 1764
This document, dated September 13, 1764, is an invoice presented to Nicholas Brown and Company by Prince Miller for 24 days of unspecified work on the brig Sally, valued at seven shillings per day. The bill also includes an additional 15 days of work, valued at two shillings per day, for "my boy." The reference is probably to an apprentice, though slave labor was also often employed in maritime trades.
