These collected letters were written almost exclusively to James Hargrave, a Hudsons Bay Company trader who was employed initially by the North West Company, but from 1821 onwards by the HBC after the amalgamation of the rival firms. The letters were written at company posts ranging from the Gulf of St. Lawrence to the Pacific, and from the southernmost limits of the Companys territory to the Arctic Circle. As the editor notes in his introduction: They form what is probably a unique chronicle of the north and west in the days before newspapers (p. xv).
