..::~: hae :arina N; lots of the purchaser and of Jose P. De
I:u-3, E, :.oasures u.S, *5 yards; E.W, 43."

in Escrituras 1803-04, County Judge's office? St. Augustine,
St, John's county page 522. Confirmation of Title by Ooy,
vhite to Don Francisco Xavier Sanchez.
Deearibed as follows: Lot 89-Block 10,

"Gove. White to Don Francisco Xavier Sanches, house and lot 09,
block 10 by deed from Don Domingo Rodriquez de Leon, 8nd
November this year, House and lot measures N.S 55 varas, side
E.W, 43 varas, bounded on fro4t which is west by St. George Ste,
East lot of agriciado, South by house of the king that is used
as a school,"

Froi: the foregoing, it can be readily determined that this house
ws at one tire used as a Sp. nish Treasury, In the opinion of
the writer it is not the original treasury building, but it is
the only building standing today which was used for this purpose,
Authority for this opinion is the map of Mariano de la Rooque of
1788, which described lot E. 14Z-block 18 as follows;

"Stone house in 0;ood state-the king's. Serves
as a cou.ntii house and treasury."


The maps referred to are photostats of the originals, and are
to be found in the WIebb Memorial Library of St. Augustine Fla.
