1.  ADS
Written on a decorative embossed printed card, like #06929.

2.  Harengs
The menu, written in French, consisted of herrings, mutton cutlets, apple tart and coffee. JW's account with John S. Charles (fl. 1876-1887), fishmonger in Pimlico, London [more], included herrings bought on the same day, 3 January 1877 (#08848). 'Harengs' is scored through in pencil, however, and 'Turbot - sauce', which is inserted in pencil, may have been a substitute.
