In the book "The Island of the Blue Dolphin" Captain Orlov goes to the Islandin hopes of trapping furs.  He enters into an agreement with the chief.  The chief is already hesitant because the Russian captain before Orlov had worked the chief's men hard. 

Orlov tells him that he will use his own men to hunt.  The chief then tells him that he wants half of all the pelts that they collect.  Orlov does not think that his agreement is fair since they will be doing all the work.  Angrily, Orlov agrees.

"The parts shall be equal," he said."(8)
