In reply to your note <1> respecting the charge upon the parcel left for you at the Albany <2> we beg to inclose <sic> our Correspondent’s letter in which it was forwarded to you, and where you will observe the charge with which we are debited is B<illeg> 6.. 4/– of Hambro’. As we had a similar charge to pay the other day of abt B<illeg> 13– for which we had to give £1.. 1.. – Stg we thought that we should not be doing wrong to charge 10/– We however sent the enclosed Memorandum to Messrs Castendieck & Wendl – a most respectable house in the Hambro’ trade, as soon as we received your note and they confirm the amount in Ten shillings –
We trust this explanation will be satisfactory
& remain, Sir,
Your Most Obedt Servts
