1873 Agenda Bureau

I bought 2 long, narrow Agenda's dated 1873 at a brocante in Moulin Engilbert last year. They are beautifully written documents. I must try and translate some of the pages. I believe there is accounting as numbers sit alongside writing and there are cows involved I'm sure. This part of Bourgogne or Burgundy is traditional for Charolais cattle. It is full still of small farms, just about clinging on for survival.
