description On the first day of September, 1784, Ambroise Burk of Lot 43 completed an autumnal trek to Three Rivers to make a trade with William Creed, a merchant of that place. Transactions between the two could not have taken nearly as long as the trip, for Burk carried away, on credit, only a couple of gallons of molasses. Later that month he returned to pay his debt "by fish" and to make further purchases for which he recompensed Creed with potatoes and a cache of chocolate. The exchange must have satisfied both parties, for Burk and Creed continued to do business until at least St. Patrick's Day, 1786.
