Title
Accounts-- Thomas Newman and Benjamin Chew, Jr., 1806-1807
Description
Collection of account documents primarily from Thomas Newman to Benjamin Chew, Jr. Thomas Newman was employed by Chew as a broker or agent for their shipping & trade interests. The letters and documents are entirely financial or business related and often requesting considerable amounts of money in the form of checks or cash. Many businesses and individuals are mentioned, particularly Thomas Biddle, Wheeler & Ashurst, and Savage & Dugan (a Philadelphia shipping and underwriting company). These account papers also frequently mention trading and purchasing of stocks, including "United States Insurance Stock" and "US Bank Stock". Purchase of coffee & sugar is also often present in these accounts. The Thomas Newman account documents in the Chew Family Paper collection date up to 1827, but only those up to 1810 have been scanned for this project. This folder also includes a few receipts and notes from Thomas Biddle, seemingly acting in the same professional capacity as Newman.
