This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 

to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 

to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 

are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other maiginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 

publisher to a library and finally to you. 

Usage guidelines 

Google is proud to partner with libraries to digitize public domain materials and make them widely accessible. Public domain books belong to the 
public and we are merely their custodians. Nevertheless, this work is expensive, so in order to keep providing tliis resource, we liave taken steps to 
prevent abuse by commercial parties, including placing technical restrictions on automated querying. 
We also ask that you: 

+ Make non-commercial use of the files We designed Google Book Search for use by individuals, and we request that you use these files for 
personal, non-commercial purposes. 

+ Refrain fivm automated querying Do not send automated queries of any sort to Google's system: If you are conducting research on machine 
translation, optical character recognition or other areas where access to a large amount of text is helpful, please contact us. We encourage the 
use of public domain materials for these purposes and may be able to help. 

+ Maintain attributionTht GoogXt "watermark" you see on each file is essential for in forming people about this project and helping them find 
additional materials through Google Book Search. Please do not remove it. 

+ Keep it legal Whatever your use, remember that you are responsible for ensuring that what you are doing is legal. Do not assume that just 
because we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States, that the work is also in the public domain for users in other 
countries. Whether a book is still in copyright varies from country to country, and we can't offer guidance on whether any specific use of 
any specific book is allowed. Please do not assume that a book's appearance in Google Book Search means it can be used in any manner 
anywhere in the world. Copyright infringement liabili^ can be quite severe. 

About Google Book Search

This volume, the forty-second of the series of "Collections" of 
the Society, for the year 1909, consists of two parts : first, "Ledger 
No. I, Chamberlain's Office Corporation of the City of New York, 
May II, 1691, to November 12, 1699," and shows a great con- 
trast of payments made by the City at that period and the pres- 
ent. Unfortunately the Journal of Payments for the same years 
is not on file. The Society is indebted to the Hon, William A. 
Prendergast, Comptroller of the City of New York, for the privi- 
lege of having this interesting City document copied. The second 
part consists of "Indentures of Apprentices, October 21, 1718, to 
August 7, 1727" ; the original volume was on file in the Register's 
Office of this City for many years and was known as "Liber 29 of 
Conveyances" ; the volume contains Indentures of Apprenticeship 
only, and came into the possession of the Society in 1905, and is 
an interesting addition to the Indentures of Apprenticeship 1694- 
1708, published in the "Collections" for 1885.
