N-1992-074: 1-2 · File · 1897-1901
Part of Buffum Fur Trade Ledgers

Ledger (4.5 cm. thick) covers the period May 7, 1897 to April 23, 1901. The location of the store where these ledgers were used is unknown, but it is possible that they originate from the Hislop and Nagle in Fort Rae Island as George Buffum may have collected them during the time when he ran his trading post. The ledgers itemize furs traded for other goods.
