Mileage Marks Stockport

Mileage Mark under the town name. Stockport 179

This letter is a pathetic request to the Attorney Mr Barker in Whitefriars Lane Chester. The manuscript charge mark shows that it would have cost Mr Barker 7d to receive it, and no doubt he would have deducted that amount from whatever sum he disbursed to the petitioner Thomas Walker. The spelling at this time was not 'set in stone' and this is transcribed exactly as it was written.
