This following is a transcript of the Barter file of my Grandfather, Charles E. M. Walker during the period of May 1892 through May of 1902 and is recorded exactly as it appears in his logbook.

It was the way he kept track of crops; money earned or paid out; or items borrowed or loaned to him and what had been repaid.
