7 18TH CENTURY PERFORMANCE BOND: PARRAT, Miriam (Mary); PARRAT, Robert . Performance Bond: Folded paper document: Mariam (Mary) Parrat of Broadwater Sussex and Robert Parrat, West Hanning, Suffolk, Farmer.
4th August, 1717. 0 
Performance Bond: Folded paper document: Mariam (Mary) Parrat of Broadwater Sussex and Robert Parrat, West Hanning, Suffolk, Farmer... 4th August 1717 . Hand written in Latin and English. Remains of red wax seal, a few edge tears and one small hole. ** "A performance bond is a surety bond issued by an insurance company or a bank to guarantee satisfactory completion of a project by a contractor. A job requiring a payment & performance bond will usually require a bid bond, to bid for the job. When the job is awarded to the winning bid, a payment and performance bond will then be required as a security to the job completion. For example, a contractor may cause a performance bond to be issued in favor of a client for whom the contractor is constructing a building. If the contractor fails to construct the building according to the specifications laid out by the contract (most often due to the bankruptcy of the contractor), the client is guaranteed compensation for any monetary loss up to the amount of the performance bond. Performance bonds are commonly used in the construction and development of real property, where an owner or investor may require the developer to assure that contractors or project managers procure such bonds in order to guarantee that the value of the work will not be lost in the case of an unfortunate event (such as insolvency of the contractor). In other cases, a performance bond may be requested to be issued in other large contracts besides civil construction projects. The term is also used to denote a collateral deposit of "good faith money", intended to secure a futures contract, commonly known as margin. Performance bonds are generally issued as part of a 'Performance and Payment Bond', where a Payment Bond guarantees that the contractor will pay the labour and material costs they are obliged to. Under the Miller Act of 1932, all Construction Contracts issued by the Federal Government must be backed by Performance and Payment Bonds. States have enacted what is referred to as “Little Miller Act” statutes requiring Performance and Payment bonds on State Funded projects as well. Performance bonds have been around since 2,750 BC and the Romans developed laws of surety around 150 AD, the principles of which still exist." - See Wikipedia .

There were two types of lath rivers, one a standing river, the other a sitting river. The sitting river was the older version, using a bench with pegs to hold the wood in place. The standing river used a small axe, sharpened on two edges. The sitting river used a riving knife. The riving tools were made by local blacksmiths. Three types of lath were made: single laths, laths and a half and double laths. Double laths were used for roofs to hold tiles, single laths for ceiling foundations,laths and a half were used for partitions. Fir wood was used for making laths: the trunks were split in half and the heart wood taken out. The sapwood was sliced along the grain, giving strength and elasticity to the lath.

Curiously there are many mis-prints corrected in pencil. Possibly this was a pre-production issue? G+. ** “ Lois Anne Fison (1829-1904) was a noted 19th century author on Suffolk folklore and anecdotes, which she collected directly from the Suffolk people. She was particularly keen on using the Suffolk dialect in her writings which sometimes rendered her stories a little difficult for younger readers. Her best known books on Suffolk are probably Merry Suffolk; Master Archie and other tales; a book of folk-lore (London: Jarrold & Sons, 1899) which includes the Tale of Tom Tit Tot (the Suffolk version of Grimm’s tale of “Rumpelstiltskin”), and Uncle Mike: an old Suffolk Fairy Tale (London: Jarrold & Sons, 1893). The latter is a traditional story of a little fairy told in a Suffolk dialect. It was apparently related to the children of the family by their nurse. Spinning Days and Olden Ways: A Suffolk Story (Ipswich: Smiths Suitall, 1904) is another of her books on the traditions of the county. Lois was born at Barningham, Suffolk, England, one of of twenty children of Thomas Fison, a prosperous landowner and farmer. Her younger brother, the Rev. Lorimer Fison (1832-1907), emigrated to Australia where he became a Wesleyan minister in Fiji, and an eminent anthropologist and journalist." - See Planet Suffolk . ***Mrs Anna Walter Thomas was Lois' sister. In 1871 Anna Fison married Rev. Walter Thomas and moved to Bangor.
