Manuscript letter written by McGowan with the aim of soliciting financial aid for a mutual friend Ernest Jones. Jones has fallen on hard times, and despite working with "unremitting diligence" on his newspaper [ The London News] he can no longer subsist. Jones' wife and two children are also very ill, and the possibility of eviction from their home could end with "fatal consequences".
