Account of Emory Johnson, Manufacturer of Cotton Twines, Neptune Twine Mills. Not sure if it was printed in 2 colors or hand tinted. Small documents (checks, receipts, notes, etc.) printed in more than one color of ink are very unusual, as most companies would not have gone to the additional expense.
