Daily account ledgers of Dr. Watkins of Big Springs, Mississippi, formerly in Chickasaw County and now in Clay County, including one daily medical account ledger, 1872-1873. Patients include African-Americans, whom Watkins indicates with “Freedman” beside their names. Two additional ledgers, ca. 1880s-1890s and 1930s, contain medical and farm accounts of Caucasians and African-Americans. Also included are loose materials from the ledgers: two letters (1906 and undated) and gin receipts for various persons from Coleman Brothers, Montpelier, Mississippi.
