Brenham; Austin, Texas: Nov. 22nd, 1861; January 28th, 1862.
Single page manuscript (26 x 20 cm.), handwritten text in brown ink recto only (though some faint pencil notes to verso). The invoice is a list of goods stored in Brenham Texas, in the early part of the Civil War, apparently for the safe keeping of the owner's inventory of spirits and other items related to his tavern or bar. The list includes "4 Brls. Old Bourbon Whiskey 165 Gallons", "1 Brl. Hol. Gin...", "1 Keg Jamaica Rum...", "1 Keg Old Port Wine...", "1/4 Cask French Brandy...", "...Arm Chairs" and other items. The second part of the document appears to be the sale of the inventory, less than one year later, to a Mr. M.M. Young. Brenham, Texas is a small city about half way between Austin and Houston. Lined paper with two crease lines, separating along one, but legible and with no text lost.
