This paper manuscript contains copies, drafts and lists of the French, English and German business correspondence of Johann Conrad Fischer (1773-1854) of Schaffhausen, covering the years 1811-1817 in mostly chronological order. About the first fifty pages cover the time period from 1811 until 1815 and contain primarily drafts of letters - recognizable by regularly occurring corrections in the text - to business partners in Romandy and in the French Jura. Pages 58 to 165 contain lists of correspondence covering the years 1816 and 1817 to recipients in Germany, Austria, England, France and Switzerland. Three other leaves are glued in at the end of the manuscript containing further drafts.
