This is a small, handwritten promise of payment of "fifty bushels of corn for the hire of boy squire for the year 1864.{" It is signed and witnessed on 23 December 1863 and allows that the note may also be paid with "one hundred sixty dollars Confederate Currency if paid shortly." A most unique slave-related and war dated item!!!!
