Abstract

Finding aid only for Manuscripts Small Collection 3074. Agreement, 25 February 1854, between O. S. Warner and Thomas Meador setting out the terms of Meador’s employment on Warner’s farm in Breckinridge County, Kentucky. The agreement provides for payment, the provision of housing and produce from an orchard, and the use of pasture by Meador. Meador’s 12-month, full-time engagement makes allowances for his family and business, and for “unnecessary exposure” to “wet weather or heavy dews.”
