Also included are the original letters which complement the Hargrave Manuscripts held by the Champlain Society and the papers of the Hudson's Bay Company.
Mrs. MacLeod's "notes" to the Letitia Hargrave Letters include biographical information in minute detail about both senior and junior employees of the Hudson's Bay Company.

The "notes" and correspondence of Mrs. MacLeod cover a wider period than the Letters of Letitia Hargrave. They complete the genealogy of the Hargrave family up to 1947.
As so many of the early officials of the Hudson's Bay Company were Scottish, those investigating the Scotch in Canada for genealogical or historical reasons may well find the perusal of this fonds rewarding.
The materials in the fonds also relate to the development of the fur trade, the social life and customs in nineteenth century Canadian trading posts, early northern missions, and the hardships of pioneer life.
