Carriage vouchers were used to transport patients and staff of Hudson River State Hospital to and from the hospital grounds. As noted on the form, venders, were unable to claim a charge against the hospital for service unless the voucher was hand signed by Superintendent James M. Cleaveland. James M. Cleaveland was the first superintendent of Hudson River State Hospital.
Although the form was created in bulk during the 1870s this example was signed on February 19th, 1880.
