Charles Haley letter

Scope and Content

Address: London. To 'Mr Whitaker' [possibly John William Whittaker, scholar and Anglican clergyman, then a fellow of the college], St John's College, Cambridge. Discusses a watch ordered by Whitaker, asking whether he would prefer it in silver or in gold; gold would cost 12 or 13 guineas more. Haley intends to put on the crest, 'but rather delicate that it may not injure the case by taking it out, yet it shall look well'.
Autograph, with signature.
