Written throughout in a single hand, these books record the daily business of solicitor with a busy practice over a 19-year period. Each entry lists clients, services rendered and fees. Several of these include brief memoranda. Taken together, these books are both a record of a practitioner's professional activities and a window into the social and economic networks of Kent in the years around the turn of the nineteenth century.
