1 It is impossible to know what these items are or why they were being auctioned or moved. Dr. Calvin Brooks McQuesten died Feb. 19, 1912 but he died in Hamilton although the auctioneer or mover might have been called to Hamilton to dispose of his items. OR these costs may have been moving costs for some of Rev. Calvin's items being delivered for his Manse at Bracebridge, see W-MCP6-1.392, Sept. 11, 1912.

It is impossible to read the numbers to determine if they are in dollars or dollars and cents--there are no periods although the Total appears with a space between the 16 & the 50, as in 16 50.
