Contractual Documents for Chinese Workers

DATE
Year: 1871
Decade: 1870s
Century: 19th (1801-1900)

Several sting bound sets discussing work performed, fulfillment of the original eight-year contract, attitude, request for residency, religion, etc. A couple have the original IDs with stamps, and one has a large pull-out. These are sets are from around the time that Macao contracts disappeared and that Contracts similar to Recontrata documents (but that were actual contracts) were used in lieu.
