Newburgh, New York
Glebe Leases, 1807-1821
Book Two (part 1)

 NOTE: Unlike the first book of leases, Book Two consists of printed sheets, later bound together. The printed leases left spaces for names and descriptions: except for this, and the notes written on the backs of the sheets, all the leases in this collection contain the same wording. Because the type was very small, far more words fit on a single line than is possible in an HTML document. Many of the original line breaks linger on in the form of hyphenations, sometimes using hyphens and sometimes using one or more "equals" signs.
