Scope and Contents Engraved monetary script. This item was worth 10 cents, could only be spent at the Provo Storehouse (Bishop's Storehouse), and was not to be used as money elsewhere. This bill is engraved on both sides with a representation of the main building of the Brigham Young Academy on it. It also has an engraved signature of Wm. B. Preston (1830-1908), Presiding Bishop of the Mormon Church, on it. Those individuals who worked for the Brigham Young Academy were often paid in such script.
