        Mrs Wilson’s Innkeeper Alnwick

Madam	I received your letter of yesterday and was rather surprised to find that you had forgot that there was £5 Added to the Bill for the Servants but on my mentioning the circumstances to you, I have no doubt but you will recollect that it was so _ Mess Grey & Beaumonts Bill as given in by you was £224-7-  We added £5 for the Servants which made £229-7  Col Beaumonts private Account was £25 6s 10d making together £254-13-10  I have no doubt but you will perfectly recollect that I paid you £255 in Notes & that you gave me 6s in change; I hope the above explanation will be satisfactory to you and if so you’ll please to give the Servants the £5 in such proportions as you think proper

                                                                                 I am etc       J.S

P.S.  I paid your Bror £2-7-6 for the Horse Col B had to Morpeth
