[These four receipts are preserved in the Koester Collection at the University of Texas at Austin. In his catalogue of the collection, Joseph Moldenhauer describes these items as: "Black ink on both sides of a scrap of yellowed white paper 3 3/16 by 4 7/16 inches" (1973, p. 79, item 94). The final two receipts were published in the American Clipper for March 1940.]
