Cooperstown, N. Y., 13. XI. 1840, Schmal-Qu.-8°. 1 Seite. Gedruckter Scheck der "Otsego County Bank" in dem von Coopers Vater gründeten Ort Cooperstown, vom Dichter eigenh. datiert, ausgestellt auf "apl. Paul Fenimore Cooper" über "Twenty | 20" Dollars. - Mit Quittungsstempel der Bank in Rot. - "Among the most active checking accounts in the bank was that of James Fenimore Cooper. The first deposit in this account was made on September 9, 1834, soon after Cooper had returned to Cooperstown from his European residence, and the last entry was a check dated September 1, 1851, just thirteen days before Cooper's death. During these seventeen years, he drew 1,740 checks against his account. Inasmuch as it was the custom during this period not to surrender checks, many of these are in the possession today of the First National Bank of Cooperstown. Endorsements were not required locally, and a number of these checks were made payable in a manner that would confound a present day bank teller. For example, checks were drawn payable to flour, potatoes, carpet bag, for splitting rails, cow, watch, E. Hull for manure, hay, plaster, beer, sow of pigs, Harry Clark in full for wagon, Boden for chairs, linen, drums and trumpets, maple sugar, turkeys, and sixteen cards of wool. All the local merchants were mentioned as well as Cooper's servants and other hired help. The members of his family named were Mrs. S.A.F. Cooper, Susan, Paul, Charlotte, Fanny, and Caroline." (www).
