The Importance of the 1st of the Month Historically

I highly suggest Frederick Douglass’ My Bondage and My Freedom.

Douglass explains how the overseer of the plantation would pick a trust worthy and obedient slave to trek to Master’s house around the first of the month to pick up rations; clothes, food, medicine, and other supplies.
