Addressed from 16 Cheyne Walk, Chelsea. The letter is undated. The conjectured date is based upon the presence of an envelope in the present collection postmarked 23 June 1863 (see folder 12). The payment of £70 would have been the first of three payments in that amount. The other two payments are recorded in the letters for 1865 March 7 and 1865 May 3.
