Entries date from Jan. 3, 1854 to Jan. 26, 1875 and are written in Steel's hand and signed by other persons. The majority of the receipts are for rents paid by Steel for his home, office, and other properties. His house, located on Chestnut St., and his office, located on Walnut St., were leased from the Almshouse Property Committee. He also paid the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts ground rent until 1871. After 1871 he paid ground rent to Fox's American Theatre. Beginning in 1864 the receipts carry internal revenue stamps. Occassional entries document Steel's professional work. For example, one is for $15 for "engraving German die of Wright's Pills." Another is for preparing map models and "for diamond point." A few pertain to domestic services, groceries, and clothes
