Apprenticeship contract

This document is a sailor’s apprenticeship contract (1760). It is in the format of a mediaeval chirograph: these documents were drawn up in duplicate, one over the other, and cut through along a zig-zag line or indent so that the two parts could be matched together (this is why these contracts are also called indentures).
