Dear Mr Whistler

Howells[2] sofa of Ebony & cane is in the possession of Mr. Philpot[3] who keeps a shop in the court opposite our shop. He wants £10- for it and I have allowed him to let it remain here until you decide whether you care for it or not

Please communicate with Philpot Crown Court
King St St Jas Sq

Yours truly

Henry E Taylor
