Database Manager on October 30, 2004:

Formerly in 4th Moravian per F. R. Webber papers. Identified there as possible Kilgen. Pinel can't identify church. Kilgen initials on pipework, along with those of some Jardine employees. Probably a Jardine rather than a Kilgen. Instrument had been removed at the time of the Webber writing.
