Notebook 1 - 1919 Letter from a doctor
55 Brunswick Square
17th Sept. 1919
Dear Mrs. Swindells,
I thank you for cheque 11 guineas. The amount should have been 12 guineas but we will consider it settled.
I was sorry to hear the boy had still some contraction and hope it has yielded to the treatment.
(Lucy's Doctor with illegible name.)
Most likely this early note from 1919 is regarding payment for treatment done to Lucy's son Betram Ian Derrick-Swindells. He went by the name Ian and was deaf. I love this note it just shows you that bill collectors have always been around, although often not nearly as accommodating! - Carrie
