Date of Composition
This volume was compiled by Daniel D. Rogers (1794-1875), one of two sons of Daniel Rogers (1764-1859), who operated a saw mill and grist mill in Stillwater, New York, that supplied the Continental Army. Daniel D. Rogers continued to live in Stillwater as an adult, where he served as a Saratoga County officeholder, first as justice of the peace, in 1813, later as coroner, in 1816 and in 1818-1822.

Mostly written in 1828, this 144-page volume contains 269 Indian and other recipes and cures, all numbered and listed in a table of contents (pages [97]-[104]). It also includes memoranda regarding two trips that Daniel D. Rogers undertook, one to western New York and one to Maryland. There are also accounts, 1835-1838, mathematical formulas and instructions, and observations on the weather.

This item is part of the Edward E. Ayer Manuscript Collection (Newberry College) and is located in a box with title: Daniel Rogers.
