The Sidney E. Stuart Account Book is an accounting ledger Stuart used to track and record his finances during his time as a cadet at West Point Military Academy
beginning in June 1876. Pasted on the inside cover are two printed notes: 1) the “Regulations in regard to Account Books”,
a list of six rules pertaining to the use of an account book, such as, “Each Cadet must present his book when he draws any
article from the Commissary” or “Each Cadet must paste his receipt from the Treasurer on the flyleaf of his Account Book”;
2) the receipt exacting $85 which was paid by Stuart to the Treasurer’s Office.
Sidney E. Stuart was a cadet for the United States Military Academy. He attended the New York Military Academy West Point
in the 1870s under the Treasurer J. M. Mills.
