Jeff Scofield on November 30, 2021:

From the NYC AGO NYC Organ Project: When it was determined that the first organ needed to be replaced, "nearly $700 were raised, and Mr. Jardine was called upon to build an organ at that price. A new and fine-toned instrument, in due time, took the place of its predecessor. Such is a brief history of the second organ of St. George's Church. It served well its purpose until superseded by a new one in 1862." (J. Carpenter Smith, History of Saint George's Parish, 1897.)

a fine-toned organ, at an expense of six hundred dollars. [Pinel says Presumably replaced by Geo. Jardine & Son, 1862, costing $700. This church is also on the Erben list (T 22:3:13) for an 1862 instrument.]
