Mr. Harry Miohie, witness, sworn:
Says that he was appointed attorney by Mrs. Hrabowski in Charles Town in
1782 to look after her property and collect in her outstanding debts.
That the claimant had a lot of land in Box's quarter which was fenced in
with two Stone Houses upon it, one of them was large, had two good rooms

upon a floor and was two stories high. The other was not above half as large
The ground floor of it was used as a kitchen and over it there was a very
good lodging room. That the large house was out of repair when he came
to it and he agreed with Mr. Irwin a Lieutenant in the navy to repair it for
living in it 6 months rent free. That Mr. Irwin told the witness the repairs
cost him near L40. That both the houses were in good repair at the time of
the session, the fence was not. That he thinks according to the (396) price
of houses they were worth L400 sterling at the time of the session; they
are appraised at L350. That he quitted St. Augustine in June 1784 and then
appointed his brother to act as the claimant's attorney who sold the 1(t
and houses for 200 dollars about three or four months after the arrivaIl of
the Spaniards. That he knows the claimant has a tract of 100 acres oi
St. John's River and believes none of it was cleared. He had directions to
sell etc.etc.
Mr. Robert Payne, witness, sworn:
That he remembers the (397) claimant's husband purchasing the lot and
houses in St. Augustine of the Provost Marshall and that he afterwards
built the lodging room over the kitchen and improved the other house. That
he was one of the appraisers of the claimant's property in April 1784, was

at that time in St. Augustine, had 20 accounts delivered in to him, but

valued the houses from the appearance of them at that time. The fences
were down at the time of the appraisement and the houses were not in good
repair having he believes stood empty for some time before the evacuation of
Charles Town. That he thinks the lot and houses well worth the sum of L350.
