Letter from WIlliam Pare to James Rigby

Scope and Content

Manuscript letter which begins with Pare asking Rigby to send him a book entitled Report on present state of certain parts of the metropolis + in model lodging houses of London, by R D Grainger.

Pare goes on to ask Rigby to tell Mr Weller to stick to a group of [?] people like a leech and if possible find out who got the contract that he tendered for a fortnight ago. Pare notes that there were many ommissions in Mr Yarrow's specification which may account for their tender being higher.

Pare concludes by asking Rigby to find out if Watson has volume 8 of The Reasoner.
