Dear John,

      Since writing my other <letter> a Gentleman called here from old Fonblanque the Chancery Barrister to get me to enquire of you wher. the present Isaac Hunter recd. any <……..> sum of money from the Exrs. of his Father as the or one of the residuary Legatees.

      I find he is enquiring on the part of Mr Scott the bror. of Miss Scott – he says Mrs Hunter had £50 p an: left her which was hardly paid, and I imagine he supposes she was a residuary Legatee.

      I told him I believed the only Int: under the Wall was her £50 p an: but I never saw the Will as perhaps you may have done so – If you can give me the Informat. do so 

undated. Neither correspondent nor recipient is given. Context and salutation suggests it was written to John Bell by a close relation in London –presumably the brother referred to by John Bell in a later letter- and perhaps written at the time of the first enquiry, in May 1832.
