This is the first post from the Clerk. I hope to use this blog to post and share information on a variety of fur trade topics, especially those related to accountancy, trade, and the countinghouse. Don't expect documentation on axe heads, folding knives, or walnut dyed accountrement.
I will from time to time post information on the financing of the fur trade, "what these things cost", whether blankets and other trade goods, or the prices of furs. Maybe even some random information on the rum trade or other related commodity, and how it ties together in the clerk.
For now, thanks for stopping by.
