Scanned image from a page of the handwriten ledger where arrests were recorded by the sheriff's office in Montgomery, Alabama. The page records the arrests of Alberta J. James (number 7027) through Burl M. Averhart (7061). Although information is recorded in several columns, the columns are not labeled and it is unclear what all the notations mean.
