I shall feel very
much obliged to you if can
contrive to get me Five pence
worth of Gin in a proper measure
Should it be speedily got I could
perhaps take it from you or Billy
at the lane if top or what would
be quite as well sent out for, to you.
I anxiously ask the favour because
I know the favour good it will
at Half past Nine in
the morning you ⟨will⟩ be paid the 5d out of
a shilling given me then. Yours, P. B. B.
