Jane’s desk

Jane Dean's deskShe would have kept meticulous records of all farm events sitting at this desk.  Some of the receipts of purchases made in Scotland and London on their honeymoon have been kept all these years.  They include Jane’s clothes, John’s shooting jackets, expensive china and silver, a waterwheel and Jane’s bible and books.  They bought everything you can think of for the home except kitchen utensils.
