Thomas Williams inventoried his brother's effects as he sent them home. We learn that in addition to clothing, Ephraim had packed what he considered other articles necessary for a officer's life: a wig, a snuff box, an ivory memorandum book with silver leaves, two silver spoons, and a portion of his library. He chose to go on campaign with Bland's "Military discipline" and two religious texts, also with books on history and politics. Thomas did not list in the inventory Ephraim's watch, which Ephraim is said to have carried at the time of his death.
