¹The meaning of this word is unknown as it was not found in the dictionary.

²Though it is not legible, it would make sense that this is bowls.

³There is a difference of 43 pounds from the items listed and the sum total. This inventory was dark and hard to read,

many of the numbers are the best guess that I can make as to what is there. Some are probably incorrect, but the spirit

of the amount is there. A large portion of the 43 pounds could come from the 10 chairs, that amount for that was illegible.
