Samuel Seay-Nashville-1848 Shipping Invoice
Item #: NEW-0012178

Click image to enlarge
This is the earliest merchant receipt that I have ever had from my home town.  April 1, 1848 "Rec'd from Samuel Seay & Son, in good order and condition, the Packages of Merchandise marked and specified in the Margin, which I engaged to deliver in the like good order, without delay, unto Ewing & Beirne at Huntsville paying carriage on the same at one dollar per 100 lbs.  Signed A Campbell.  "
The goods were shipped to Ewing & Beime-one box containing 1 stone, 645 lbs.  Evidently from the little graphic it was carried by horses and wagon.  More writing on the back. Rag paper with several tears at the right edge.  Some foxing. Here is some information on Samuel Seay found of the web and taken from the History of Davidson County

At different times he was engaged in the manufacture of gunpowder, soaps, oils, candles and rope, but he was best known as a wholesale grocer and commission merchant.  During his business career of forty years he was perhaps the most widely known of any merchant in Tennessee.  Among his associates in business were Joseph T. Elliston, Gen.Robert Armstrong, and Joseph H. Shepherd.

1899 Letterhead-Southern Railway Company
Item #: NEW-0010055

Click image to enlarge
Early railroad advertising letterhead for the Southern Railway company, which according to Wikipedia was a former United States railroad. It was the product of nearly 150 predecessor lines that were combined, reorganized and recombined beginning in the 1830s, formally becoming the Southern Railway in 1894. It was placed under control of the Norfolk Southern Corporation, along with the Norfolk and Western Railway (N&W), in 1982, and was renamed Norfolk Southern Railway in 1990. (The N&W continued to exist as a subsidiary until 1997.) The back of the letterhead is the best part which shows a map of the railway lines for the company.
