    left

    I'm confused about the meaning of "left" in the following context.

    At midnight they halted in front of a friendly tavern in Surrattville; watered their panting horses; called for the field-glasses, guns, and ammunition that had been left there that afternoon by Mrs. Surratt; drank a dollar's worth of whisky...

    Is this saying "Mrs. Surratt had prepared in advance the field-glasses, guns, and ammunition"?

    Thank you.

    Yes, she took those items to the tavern during the afternoon and left them there for John Wilkes Booth to collect.
