James Anderson Rose (1819-1890), solicitor [more]. This writ was served on JW, but passed with JW's bankruptcy papers to Rose. Rose charged comparatively little for his valiant attempts to stave off JW's creditors. JW petitioned to be declared bankrupt in January and was declared 'insolvent' on 6 May 1879. See also JW's letter to Rose on 27 March confirming receipt of the writ (#08766).
