Full 9 months has now elapsed since I waited upon you with an old account - £2.18.0 & respectfully requested its settlement, you then promised in apparent good faith that you would most certainly send me the money on that day - but none has come yet, from various causes I am in some considerable financial [p. 2] difficulty, and should be much obliged if you would kindly forward me the above sum, at your earliest possible convenience,
I remain Sir
[p. 3] Hederley 2. 18. -

This letter refers back to a letter dated November/December 1877 (#08960) as having been written nine months previously. It dates from the time of JW's increasing financial difficulties. He was declared bankrupt on 6 May 1879.
Written in JW's hand. This may have been forwarded to James Anderson Rose (1819-1890), solicitor [more], since it remained with JW's legal and bankruptcy papers in Rose's possession.
