The ledger consists of monies owed to Randolph and the date and method of payment. Little detail on what was sold or work performed is given. Many prominent Philadelphians are mentioned in the volume. Bills reveal that Randolph sold a desk and bookcase to George Croghan in 1766, chairs and tables in 1768, and a gilded looking glass to Levi Hollingsworth. Ledger contains accounts under the names of William Shippen, Jr., Willing & Morris, Richard Bache, Joseph Galloway, Clement Biddle, Benjamin Harrison, Library Company of Philadelphia, Richard Peters, George Washington, Thomas Jerffreison [sic], Committee of Safety, Joseph Reed, and others.
