Scope and Content

From Mrs F.A. Gerry at Rowden Farm, Tavistock, Devon to Lewis Court.

She was handed a letter by her mother-in-law which she received from Court, asking her to forward to Court a certain magazine which formerly belonged to Gerry's father Mr Symons of Liddaton. Just before he died five years ago, he gave the book to her. It is dated 1822 and has been in the possession of her family since 1823. The book was obviously very precious to her father and she does not therefore want to let it go. She hopes that Court understands her feelings on this matter.
