Lovecraft's inheritance

FRom: City of Providence tax book By Providence (R.I.), Retail Men's Credit Association of Providence, 1904.

Serendipity, just happened to be one of the scanned books on Google.


On p.60, from ST Joshi, HPL: A Life, it's reported that Susan received $5000 and Lovecraft $2500 from Whipple's estate. I have no idea how to reconcile these tax reports with those reported figures. Was this rental income from the quarry? I just don't know. What's interesting is that Lovecraft's values are higher than Susan's.
