Post lot text
Contents: The tone of the letter, which commences "My dear Friend", would indicate that the author is the illegitimate son of Admiral Digby. After writing in intimate terms about their past "friendship" he then rebukes the Admiral for neglect and demands £490 p.a., or half that amount if he is allowed a room in his house during his stay in London.
