General note

Signed with cross (presumably by François Michel) and signature of Owen McDougal.

General note

Printed form on laid paper with handwritten additions, identical to MSG 1108-07 through MSG 1108-13. This is a generic contract form, not found in Lande. It was likely a Canadian imprint printed prior to 1800.

General note

Month of contract date is not given; Lande dates this contract to 5 February 1800.

General note

Contract may represent a verbal agreement, as no employment conditions are stipulated and the voyageur appears to be illiterate.
