An Easier Rendering than the Whiskey

Another document from the same set of records as the earlier post from "Who is Paying in Whiskey?" but this has one additional name.


  1. James Tinsley
    John Sears
    Jacob Hon

    are the names.

  2. Please explain how to decipher the name, John Sears. I read this blog daily for practice and to improve my reading ability but I can't pull John Sears from the signature.

  3. This one was more difficult than usual---and the Sears name is really not legible from the signature. I'm posting the entire image and a short discussion in a day or two and will post the link to that here.

    Thanks for reading!
