Mrs T Bentham letters

Scope and Content

Address: Ryde, [Isle of Wight]. 3 letters to Richard Wilson, Esq, 47 Lincoln's Inn Fields, London. Enquires about payments of money to her as she has very little, and her rheumatism is the cause of heavy expenditure on doctors' bills; the doctor had charged 10s 6d a visist and had advised her to move to Bath rather than risk another winter on the Isle of Wight. Had received a quarterly payment of £25 from a Charles Bacon, withdrawn for the year 1817-1818. Enquires about payment from Mr Bentham [?her husband], to be arranged through Sir James Graham, and about money owing to her from 3 shilling stock, for which she has apparently waited 10 years.
Autograph, with signature.
