Notebook of debtors and creditors of the brothers Marco and Parrino Seccrani, for the years 1543-1556. Often includes the nature of a given credit or debt and its amount, as well as listing the names of the individuals that hold the debt or credit. Among the names that appear throughout the notebook are Agnolo Caciolli; Paolo Signorini; Michele and Baccio Corselli; and a miller called Lazzaro. Most transactions are related to farm and household management for the Seccrani estate, including the purchase of food for the house (examples include flour, sugar and various cuts of beef); the sale, purchase or receipt as payment in kind of cattle, poultry (hens, chickens, capons and roosters) and swine; and the payment of the wages of the employees of the Seccrani estate (the miller Lazzaro, a nanny, and a number of other individuals who helped the two brothers with the animals and the land). In the notebook there are also records of small sales of farm produce made by the Seccrani brothers and such transactions appeared to be settled in cash.
