Dear Sir,

Re: George Barnsley, deceased.

We have received your letter stating that Mrs. Fox will be unable to attend at Hope on Wednesday next.

We enclose statement of account showing the receipts and payments made by us on account of the estate leaving a balance of [British pound sign] 182.12.7 to be divided between your wife and Mrs. Wragg.

Mrs. Fox will please sign her name and the date across the first stamp where they appear in pencil and then be good enough to return the account to us by next post
as we may require to refer to it on Monday.

The only claim now outstanding so far as we are aware is Shirley’s.

We will bring over to Hope on Wednesday all the bills for your inspection.

Yours Truly,
Bagshaw & Hall, JHF
