From E. A. Darwin [1 February 1825]
Many thanks for your letter. The bill is all right, & I shall be much obliged to the Dr. if he will pay it. It is for those things wh. I told you he kept me so long waiting for.
There is another bill I have in town, which I should wish paid in the same manner if it would not be too much trouble, to wit—
W & S. Ewart & Co
19. Swallow Street £13’12.0. London
You may ask this latter gentleman to send an acknowledgment, for I have known him send a bill twice over.
If this last commission should be troublesome, never mind it.
Good Bye | yours, | E. D.
P.S. | Let’s hear from you. Obs. The P.S. is as short as the letter & for the same reason, which I shall leave you to guess.
This for Dr. D—
I lent Mr Tighe 13£ in your name & wh. I believe he wrote about, & is I hope all right | I remain | your lendpenny | & spendpenny | son. | E. D—
Tells CD a bill is all right. Hopes his father will pay it and a wine merchant’s bill as well.
