    The shape of my leather gunpowder wallets/bags is determined by the shape of the hide & how many bags I can get out of each piece.

    Supplies for the six militia men: 6 pounds of gunpowder in bags of one eighth of an ell. 1756-1760 journal of Louis Antoine de Bougainville

    France, Archives de Colonies series C11A, volume 117, folios 191v to 194, National Archives of Canada, microfilm f-118.

    "takes readily from the spark of a steel: but is much improved by being kept dry in a bag that has contained gunpowder" (57).
    ~Samuel Hearne, Northern Canada, 1772
