BEETHOVEN 200 YEARS AGO TODAY: Sunday, November 2, 1823

Potato sack
Oil for the stove and the window
Wine from the Tiefer Graben, under the supporting arch.

Below that, a series of figures of Austrian money (likely household expenses, since they are all 3 florins or less) are heavily crossed out.
