Mary Archer Recipe Book

Notebook belonging to Mary Simpson Brown Archer containing handwritten recipes for desserts, pickles, medicinal remedies and other preparations. Both Mary and her son Thomas practiced writing their signatures in the book. The book appears to have been created over a period of time; the inside front cover mentions a financial transaction on February 12, 1852, while a page in the middle of the book bearing several instances of Thomas Archer's signature includes the date September 19, 1868.
