Dr Elizabeth Wilks to the Chancellor of the Exchequer

Scope and Content

She complains that 'your Department had illegally collected that tax from me by distrait on my property' She therefore requests that he will now rectify the illegal distrait 'by returning to me what you have illegally exacted' (note added by niece Dorothea Taylor in 1968 to the effect that the furniture removed to pay taxes for which Mark Wilks was liable belonged to his wife so she claimed return of the money)
