Manifest Manifests like the ones illustrated here are commonly found in collections of maritime business papers. The one from New Orleans in 1808 is for a cargo of 818 bales of cotton, New Orleans to New York. The other is a Manifest (only the upper half shown) for a large general cargo shipped from London to New York in 1828. The uniform handwriting on this document would indicate that it was probably the official copy taken aboard the vessel and produced upon arrival.
