My dear Sir,

Footnotes

CD recorded a payment of £25 on 31 January 1877 for ‘Ffinden Living’ in his Classed account books (Down House MS). CD appears on the list of subscribers to the Downe Vicarage Endowment Fund for 1876, having donated £25; the payment made in January 1877 was evidently for the fund of 1876, since CD did not contribute to the fund in any other year (London Borough of Bromley Archives, P/123/3/6).

Summary

Encloses £25 contribution.
