T.P.L. 4754. This volume deals with the affairs of the Hudson's Bay Company's post at the Bottom of the Bay, later known as the Southern Department. Moose Fort and its subsidiary posts played a vital part in the attempts to expand the fur trade inland in the latter half of the eighteenth century. The fort was one of the Company's oldest and the one farthest south on the Hudson Bay. It was so situated that it drew Indian traders from the network of rivers flowing into James Bay and was also a seaport for the "great ships" that yearly kept a line of communications with England.
