This bill came with his bankruptcy papers to James Anderson Rose (1819-1890), solicitor [more]. It was not paid, and was presented again at Christmas 1878 (#08962). JW was declared bankrupt on 6 May 1879.
JW had just moved into the White House in Tite Street, although the interior was still unfinished.
