OCast anejar, manear, Eng to manage, handle; move, revolve, agitate; accumulate. [Nola/Pérez. 1994:72]

NOLA’S INTRODUCTION INCLUDES A CHAPTER ON THE DUTIES OF THE OVERSEER IN CHARGE OF PROVISIONS[1]

The Overseer or Supply Manager’s position is one of trust and honor in the home of the lord. He is in charge of the management of provisions in general as he must see that items are purchased at a fair price; he must know the value of all items, look for the best and cheapest offers and know where to find each item. He must keep the pantry readily stocked with all essentials and insure that nothing is lacking in the pantry, the liquor cellar or the spicery.  He must insure that no items are spoiled and that storage rooms have only that which is necessary. The supply clerk must report to the overseer daily and never accumulate bills because there can be no confusion concerning them. Each week the costs for supplies with those of the butler most be reported with a daily, weekly, monthly and annual accounting of expenses; he must excuse disorderly expenses and spend honestly for that which is necessary and no more: and this is enough for this position.




[1] The position of an overseer is above that of a pharmacist.
