W. Awdry Esq
I will thank you to send Coutts <1> the order for the transfer of the money into my name, you had better keep the cheque yourself.
I am afraid there is an error in the transaction, my memory deceives me greatly if I gave the Company possession of the land in September 1846; it appears to me that I did so either in June or July of that year. I have a Mr H.G. Awdry’s <2> agreement (which states the day) to refer to.
In the meantime I beg to call your attention to it without delay, the difference amounting to an important sum –
1. Coutts & Co
2. Henry Goddard Awdry (1804–1881), solicitor, Chippenham
