About 300 lots, including seven feather beds, five bedsteads, sheets and blankets, carpets, chairs, settles, dining and other tables, brewing copper, saucepans, kettles, glass and china ware, glass and stone bottles, pewter measures, liquor casks and many more varied items were worth the attention of the public.
