This is a loose sheet of pencil notes, found amongst the April 1804 pages in the Newcastle Office copy Letter Book. These receipts were the subject of dispute with Taylor & Sons in 1807 as the Mr John Hall who signed this note went bankrupt and was ‘disowned’ Taylor & Co. who tried to avoid payment.
