There are two ledgers for Lemont & Sons, dating from 1895-1902. The first ledger (1895-1897) offers daily and weekly totals of cash and credit sales, along with the net profit totals for each. The ledger also includes daily and weekly totals for sales and credit transactions by types of merchandise sold (furniture and woodenware, crockery and china, glassware etc.), as well as totals for goods sold at auctions and on bargain Saturdays. The second ledger (1898-1902) records daily and weekly totals for sales and credit transactions by types of merchandise sold (furniture and woodenware, crockery and china, and sundries). There are also monthly and yearly totals for cash and credit sales from "fancy tables upstairs" that include sums for sales, costs, and profits (1901-1902) as well as monthly and yearly totals for general cash sales that include sums for sales, first payment, and balance of accounts (1895-1902).

He records the names of potential customers, their place of residence, occasionally their occupation, the names of insurance companies holding their policies (if any), the date insurance was taken out, and reasons for refusing to purchase an insurance policy. Beginning in October 1900, Lemont begins using this journal, to some extent, as a personal diary. He records details of business trips, family gatherings, and political rallies attended among other activities and events. The journal also includes a listing of Fredericton voters, for uptown and downtown, dating to 1900, that was clipped from the local press; a listing of fire insurance and accident insurance companies operating in Canada along with the names of agents; and a listing of medical doctors practising in York County about the turn of the 20th century.

Lastly the fonds includes a few clippings from newspapers and magazines on a number of subjects seemingly of personal interest to the collector(s).
