The above is a combination of the letterhead and sales-slip headings of the company.

 

There are blank pages. Pages 284 to 312 are blank, pages 353 to 384 are blank and 404 to 456, the end, are blank. It may be that the years 1908-09-10 were included in this ledger and were separated by the unused pages. There being no regular notation of years, it is impossible to state for a fact.
