Lumber receipt (SAFR 18805, HDC 453) is handwritten on blue printed letterhead made out to Mr. J.C. Hayes, Sheriff of San
Francisco for "5550 feet of rough redwood lumber at a cost of $416.25." The receipt is undated and a ship name is not mentioned.
However, there were ships that were converted into a prison, including the WABAN and the EUPHEMIA. The lumber could have been
used to convert one of these ships into a prison. Likely it is for the conversion WABAN since it was bought in 1851 and made
into the first California State Prison. The WABAN was first moored at Angel Island and then moved to San Quentin, where the
state prison is still presently located. This collection has been processed and is open for use without restriction.
