Monthly accounts

Scope and Content

Various loose sheets described as 'Monthly Acct. of Mellor Mill...'; These 'accounts' detail the relative costs of standard units of yarn and labour costs. The figures include amount of raw cotton carded and amount of yarn spun, and the difference between the two. Figures for the average price per thousand hanks and average wages per hand per week are given. The first piece has the date '1807' added in pencil, but this is not corroborated by internal evidence.
