The archivist in me was super excited when I stumbled across the following document. And yes, the words archivist and excitement can occur in the same sentence…

This is an inventory of the furniture of the Methodist manse in Liverpool in 1842 and was found in the Liverpool Methodist Circuit Quarterly Official Board minute book (1817-1870). If you’ve spent many late nights puzzling over what the sorts of furniture would be found in a manse in 1842, today is your lucky day!
