A detailed daily account of events at Astoria. Begins with a list of the names and occupations of the company at their departure from New York on 6 Sept. 1810 and occasional entries of the most important events of the voyage around the Horn. Daily entries begin with their arrival at the mouth of the Columbia River on 22 March 1811. Each entry notes first the weather, personnel assignments and sick list, and progress of work in hand; then reports the day's events including visits of Indians, purchases of pelts and other transactions, hunting expeditions, arrivals and departures, news from outside, and actions of company management. The daily entries end on 24 Oct. 1813, a week after McDougall agreed to sell the post to the rival North West Company. There are three more entries, concluding with the arrival of the North West agents on 30 November.
