Buck, Lawrence M. Buck and the Buck Glass Co. are included in the cashbook. Other persons and businesses are represented as well.
Office expenses are recorded along with income and expenses of rental properties, salaries, mortgage payments, and interest from stocks. Personal expenses for club and association fees, department store purchases, and charitable gifts are entered.

Members of the Grafflin Family of Baltimore City were the owners of several businesses during the period 1910-1918. George W. Grafflin had a lumber business; John C. Grafflin manufactured bags; and William H. Grafflin sold fertilizers. William H. Grafflin also served as vice-president of the Buck Glass Company of which George G. Buck was president. When Baltimore's subscription library, the Mercantile Library, failed in the 1880s, William H. Grafflin was a contributor to a fund [1886-] organized by Daniel Coit Gilman to purchase the collections of the library.
