Summary
Cash book, 1860 January 1-1871 December 23, of George Clinton Genet (1824-1904), a prosperous American lawyer residing in New York City and Rensselaer County, New York. He was the son of Edmond Charles Genet (1763-1834), known as "Citizen Genet," first Minister of the French Republic to the United States, and his second wife, Martha Brandon Osgood. He married Augusta Georgia Kirtland (d. 1911) in 1863. Brief entries show cash disbursements and receipts for personal, family and business affairs in both locations. Income entries include payments for legal costs and fees, property rentals and livestock sales, loan repayments, investment returns, and salary payments from the City. Disbursements reflecting Genet's personal taste and wealth include entries for cigars, entertainment, purchases at Tiffany's, payments for books and household furnishings, and donations to charities, political clubs, and patriotic causes. Other payments include cash for his wife's needs, costs relating to residences in Manhattan and East Greenbush, business and travel expenses, and payments of interest as a trustee. The volume also contains several entries for a trustee account dating 1913-1914.
