EJ Phillips' Manhattan with a number of photographs

Still need photographs
A silver mug "presented by the patrons of the Utica Museum to John Nickinson, Manger, March 8, 1858.  Is this in Pensacola?  Can we get a photograph?
Lizzy has EJ Phillips' traveling mirror.  I'd love a photograph of that. 
Em is to get me a picture of EJP's trunk, and the flowered bodice that was in it, too small for anyone but a young girl.  
Do we know where the Nickinson sword, shoe buckles and/or Masonic items are?
