Description

Some indentures were completely handwritten; this one is a mixture of printing and handwriting. The printed text lays out the conditions of the agreement, suggesting they were set and unchangeable, and also interchangeable any master and prospective apprentice could use them. In this instance, the agreement is between cordwainer (shoemaker) Johannes Boone and William Stanton, son of William Stanton, aged about 9 years. This item was included in the Scrawl and Order exhibit, http://lib.msstate.edu/exhibits/past/.
