TitleCopy letter from William Hyde Wollaston to Henry Wollaston
Date[10 April 1823 ?]
DescriptionWollaston notes his respect for his brother's conduct throughout life. He wishes he could procure for Henry the customs post or any other that would suit him. However, he declines to solicit favours in such circumstances, citing the likely lack of success and the forfeit of some of his independence. Instead, he forwards a transfer of property.

With a note: 'The enclosure alluded to was a Stock Receipt for Ten Thousand Pounds...'.
