[graphic]

The foregoing example of a Day Book, may suffice to give a good idea of the way 11 which it is proper to make the original entries of all debt and credit articles. Anoher small book should next he prepared, according to the following form, termed the wook of fccounts, or Leger. Into this hook must be posted the whole contents of the Day Book ; care being taken that every article be carried to its corresponding title che delt nnounts to be entered in the leit, and the credit in the right hand page. Thus, should it at any time be required to know the state of an accomt, it will only be neces Mary to sum up the 'wo columns, and to subtract the smaller amount from the greater ne remainiles will be the balance.

When an article is posted from the Day Book into the Leger, it will be proper, op: posite the article, to note the same in the margin of the Day Book, by writing the word Enterrd, or making two parallel strokes with the pen : to which should be addest the gure denoting the page in the Leger where the account is.

On a hrank page at the beginning or end of the Leger, an alphabetical index should me written, containing the names of every person with whom you have accounts in the Seger, with the number of the page where the ascounts are.
