I’ve been hard at work trying finish up the saga of Buchanan’s Tavern, and it still isn’t done. Still some last minute questions to resolve. But I want to share this little surprise I found in the Guardianship papers for the children of Archibald Buchanan dec’d (File No. 73). I guess the Surrogate’s Clerk had some empty moments to fill.

Found on minutes of a hearing in the guardianship papers for Archibald Buchanan dec'd, No. 73

Was the clerk’s name ‘S. Camaken Houd’ ?  Love the tree, the book and the number square.
