How to Get the Ledger in Red Dead Redemption 2

This guide will show you how to quickly get the ledger in Red Dead Redemption 2.

As you play through Red Dead Redemption 2, you’ll quickly find that upgrading your camp is a necessary task. Not only will upgrading your camp give you access to fast travel, it will also give you access to other necessities, such as better provisions, more potent medicines, and better gear

However, you can’t simply upgrade your camp at will — at least not at the beginning of the game. Instead, you first have to gain access to the ledger. Much like everything else in the game, RDR 2 doesn’t tell you how to get the ledger, even though it’s rather simple. 

How to Get the Ledger

To get the ledger, you’ll first have to start the Money Lending and Other Sins side quest, which you can get from Leopold Strauss (Herr Strauss). 

You will find Herr Strauss at the Horseshoe Overlook camp. From Arthur’s tent, go past the community camp fire and toward the bluff overlooking the valley below. Strauss will be sitting on a rock

You will automatically start the quest when approaching him. 

Completing the Money Lending and Other Sins Side Quest

Strauss will task you to collect three debts. However, you only need to collect one of them to gain access to the ledger. 

The easiest and quickest debt to collect is from Wrobel, who is a few miles west of the camp. Once you get to his house, question him about the debt. When he tells you to “take anything” from the house as payment, simply loot the two armoires in the corners and the desk by the door.

Going into the bedrooms is pointless because there’s nothing of value in them. 

Return to Strauss at Horseshoe Overlook

Once you return to Strauss and speak with him. After, you can find the ledger to the right of the contribution box at Dutch’s tent

Now, you can buy upgrades for the camp, including those for fast travel and upgrading Arthur’s equipment.
