You cannot give this necessary description unless you have an
accurate tabulated list of your belongings and their valuation. If
you wait until the fire occurs it will be too late to make that list
except from memory. You have got to do it before the fire;
therefore, you should secure a complimentary copy of our House

which you possess.
The book is 5l2 by 8J4 inches in size, contains 36 pages, and
every article of furniture is listed, room by room. AU you have
to do is to place a valuation after each article. There are also
pages devoted to the listing of books, bric-a-brac, china, glassware,
silverware, clothing, linen, pictures and jewelry, and a recapitu
