D, ViLxW. In GW’s Account Book as reassembled, this is the verso of sheet 21, following the Account of Items in the Estate used by Mrs. Custis (doc. III-A–2). GW gives it the heading printed here. GW may have intended to make here a complete list of estate items sold but stopped after the fifth entry. For recordings of items sold, see doc. III-A–5 and appendices B and E./
