Dear Anita:

Please accept my apologies for nothba-i- able to fully respond to
your request of October 27, 1992 concerning the objects on loan
to the Military Hospital. There are too many excuses to
enumerate, plus, if you were to add the amount of information I
am now forwarding, you would be left in the never ending "Sea of
I have reviewed the draft of the loan form and the attached
lists you enclosed with your letter. On the loan form, there is
one discrepancy in the object numbered 25760 (Scarifier). This
number does not appear on any of the past loan forms from
Gainesville (Z-90-7 and Z-90-9), nor did it appear during the
March 92 inventory.

As for the other lists you attached to the October draft loan
form, most of the object numbers listed do not match any
previous Preservation Board inventory lists or loan forms from
Gainesville (Also, please note in my 3-19-92 inventory report to
Gainesville, the list of objects found on exhibit at the Military
Hospital, but do not appear on any loan forms from Gainesville.
Regretfully, when this list is compared with yours, the numbers
still do not match). In an attempt to reconcile some of these
mismatched numbers, I have written notes next to the objects
listed (enclosed) to show either where the object has been
recorded on a previous list, or possibilities of different
objects having the same number i.e., H2553. Other items may have
been misnumbered during past transfers, or some may be those
items returned to you on September 25, 1992, which were listed as
not having a number.

There may be one other possibility. During and after the time of
Kate Dupes initiating the loans and installing the exhibit for
the Military Hospital, she also was working very closely with Bob
Hawk, historian for the St. Augustine National Guard, on two
separate museum projects the Tovar House in St. Augustine, and
the Fort Blanding museum. You may want to check with those
museums (Ms. Dupes and Mr. Hawk are no longer in the area) to see
if they have any of the collection.

I hope this has helped to clear up some of the mystery. If my

notes, comments or past lists seem to be too cryptic, or if you
just need more clarification, please do not hesitate to call.
