Instructions to his agents to pay '35 £ sterling' to Captain Wolseley, 'and I need not say that you will always attend to Mrs Nelson's demands for what money she may call for', and on the difficulty of finding time to get his accounts done. Nelson had written to Fanny the previous year that she should not be 'sparing' in sending to Marsh and Creed (the Navy Agents in the Strand) for money.
