In an old ledger of the late Milton Little of Monterey, one of the early pioneers, who conducted a grocery store there from 1841 to 1853, one of the pages shows the account of Thomas O. Larkin, and the other a portion of the index, with the name Walter Colton.

Among the prominent names in the ledger are those of Thomas O. Larkin, who started an account in 1843; Walter Colton; Manuel Castro, prefect of Monterey, 1842-1846, who wrote the famous letter to General Fremont on March 5, 1846, asking him to leave the country; Judge G. E. Dickinson, builder of the first brick house in California, at Monterey; Captain Fitch; John Gilroy, a pioneer of 1814, and founder of the town that bears his name;. W. E. P. Hartnell, intimately connected with the early history of California; Captain Paty; Robert Semple, president of the first Constitutional Convention; Juan Antonio Vallejo, and Dona Maria Antonio Pico de Castro, wife of Simeon Castro, alcalde of Monterey, 1836-1842.
