HISTORIC ST. AUGUSTINE PRESERVATION BOARD


DATE: April 17, 1989


TO: Marsha and Valerie


FROM: Susan Parker.-e


RE:


1840's inventories


Here are some items which I thought might be of interest included
in an inventory made in 1841 of a boarding house in St.
Augustine. Because of the business nature of boardinghouses,
their inventories appear much more frequently than those of
personal homes in bills of sale and as collateral for loans. It
was a long inventory and I am only listing the things which
caught my interest or that I didn't remember being in the Mesa-
Sanchez house:


backgammon board
two night chairs
Brass & tin spittoons
tumbler drainers
/large bath tub
Japan waiters
/damask tablecloth
mustard spoons
china butter stands
(butter plates listed
previously)


curtains: damask, muslin, calico
Vhearth rugs
wine coolers
Vlime squeezer
Vwash tubs and foot tubs
octagonal salad plates
egg spoons
nut crackers
large patent cooking stove


(Deed Book O, page 305, St. Johns County public records)


I also found a reference that Charles Loring occupied the house,
following Seth Giffordjin Deed Book O, page 250, which concerned
the sale of an adjacent lot.
