The Grove Harrow – May 16. 1859

<embossed crest, top centre>

Dear Sir

On looking over my Banker’s Book. I find that there is apparently a mistake in the Amt entered as paid by you for your son’s acct up to Xmas This is £64? 1ּ 10ּ when the real amt was £67? 1ּ 10ּ nor can I account for the error, which I was anxious to do, without troubling you. May I request you therefore, unless there has been some cause for the difference of which I am not aware, to add this sum of £3 to the Easter Bill of £60ּ 18ּ 2 which is now due – making <it?> at £63ּ 18ּ 2?

I remain Dear Sir Yours vy faithfully

Thos Henry Steel

W H Fox Talbot Esq
