Scope and Content

From Bishopsgate Street, London, to Madeley, Shropshire. He has received Mary's letter with the £39.18.4 and has passed £10 on to Mr Whittingham via Mrs Gaussen. William is sorry that Mary has troubled herself about the money for he does not think they need it as much as Mary herself does - they have had some assistance from various people and their annual income amounts to £200 which is more than they spend.

If Mary does visit London as she intends, it will give William immense pleasure to see her and [John] Fletcher.

He presumes that she found the journey to Dublin rather tiring.

Miss Harrell called a few days ago for her money.
