Description

This document is a bill of sale sent to Governor Henry M. Rector for the sale of wine and a loan of cash from the Anthony House.

Biographical/Historical Note

The Anthony House was Little Rock's premier hotel from 1830 through 1875, standing at the southwest corner of Markham and Scott Streets. Many public events were held at the Anthony House over the years, but the location is probably best known for being Elisha Baxter's headquarters during the Brooks-Baxter War of 1874, before being destroyed in a fire the following year.
