Description'Dear Mr Wheeler,
I write to let you know that the Royal Society has paid the income-tax on Mr White's pension, including the £30 paid to you as his executors after his death. I just send you this word lest you should pay over again what has already been paid.
Yours truly

P.S. Please give my kind regards to Mrs Wheeler, & tell her that our charwoman proves satisfactory. We were much obliged for the trouble she took for us'.
