General note

An accounting system appears to have been formalized in the late 1880s (from which period the letterbooks of outgoing correspondence and the series of cancelled cheques and promissory notes also date) and was elaborated into a full set of books in September 1893. The entries in the seven-column cash books, tricolumn journals, and inventory book are carried over to accounts in the Ledger for 1893-1915. There are cross-references to a later ledger but it was not in the fonds as received. This record keeping system survived the death of Charles W. de Carle in 1928, but the various series terminated at varying dates thereafter. Financial records were simplified to sets of cash and sales books following the death of Victor de Carle in 1939.
