Cash books, sales records, labor accounts and time sheets, ledgers, invoice books, factory order slips, factory inventories, credit reports on other companies, and correspondence of an East Hampton, Connecticut, bell manufacturer. Sales included gongs, rattles, scales, chimes, and tea, call and door bells, among other products. Their customers were located throughout the east. Correspondence with A. Mugford, a Hartford engraver, concerned the printing of a catalog for N.N. Hill, 1902-1906. Muller, Maclean & Co., New York City merchants, in 1906 were trying to make a contact to sell bells overseas. A long correspondence, 1902-1912, with the Wm. L. Gilbert Clock Co. of Winsted, Connecticut, included orders, requests for delivery, and complaints about the quality of products. The letterhead for Gilbert Clock illustrates the factory building. Also "factory correspondence" from Riemann, Seabrey Co. of New York City concerning orders and other business, 1914. Found with these materials are two ledgers, numbered 7 and 8, with entries for customers, most from East Hampton, Connecticut, for such items as cheese, overalls, bacon, oil, beef, oats, and "merchandise", 1896-1908. These may be the records of the company store, or of an independent merchant in town. There is no identification.
