Other stuff:
jeffries_03 (enlarge) This is a Jeffries drug store receipt from 1907. The letterhead says:
Warrenton, VA., January 1st, 1907 / Mrs. L. V. Ramey / To JOSEPH A. JEFFRIES, Dr. / DEALER IN / Drugs, Medicines, Oils, Paints, Stationery, Books, Fancy Goods, / CONFECTIONERY, FRUITS, ETC. / All Time Bills Due Quarterly and Prompt Payment Required
It looks like the items were bought in October, November & December. I presume that means a customer could keep receiving items and only pay for them at the end of the quarter.
jeffries_05 (enlarge) This is an earlier Jeffries drug store receipt, this time from 1901. It's more ornate, and says:
Warrenton, VA., October 1st, 1901 / Mrs. Lucy V. Ramey / To JOSEPH A. JEFFRIES, Dr. / DEALER IN / Drugs, Medicines, Oils, Paints, Stationery, / Books, Fancy Goods, / Confectionery, Fruits, &c. / All Time Bills Due Quarterly and Prompt Payment Required
jeffries_06 (enlarge) This looks kind of like a check, but I think it was a receipt. It says:
WARRENTON, VA., April 1st 1902 / One 65/100 ----- DOLLARS. / Dec to April 1st 1902 / JEFFRIES' DRUG STORE / Joseph A. Jeffries
