A page of entries detailing the financial history of the Schooner Ranger, a Great Lakes cargo ship, from 1810-1815. The ship sustained damage in 1811 on its journey from Detroit to Black Rock, in which 3 people drowned. The ship was subsequently "destroyed by the enemy in January 1813". In August 1815, the ship's account was settled. The settlement acknowledged that the ship was "taken by the U.S. Navy Officers for the use of the Government", and is signed by Porter, Barton & Co., and George Kibbe.
