This is a receipt on paying property tax of a "mountain". It is dated on the ? day 10th month in the 45th year of Qianlong Emperor (1784). How much was the tax paid by the owner of the property "Exact 100th of one once of silver" as indicated on the receipt. Wow, I wish I'd pay that amount on the house I own in California.

Yes but mountains are so 80's ! Who and why (unless a company) would own their own mountain. I guess its a solid investment! Sorry guys sleepless in Canada and sad humor.
Fotofila- Looking at this and the other items and help you have added it seems as SCF has a great new contributor.
