Description:

Ornate Victorian bill dated “18th July 1896”. Unnumbered. It reads “Recived from Laurese Hughes Esq. of [?] the Sum of four hundred and fifty Pounts — Shillings and — Pence being the balance of the [?] Valeey Company[?].” Below is shows a breakdown as being “£450” plus a “Deficit” of £50. signed with a Queen Victoria penny lilac, oversigned.

I will return to this at a later date to try and work out what it reads a little better!
