Abstract

I have enquired with the application of the L.P.D. Co. for the L2.5.0 in payment for transporting your parcels from the Crystal Palace to the City Road, and I much regret to report to you, that the money was never paid by Mr Osgood Wiley, that no one in the employ of the Company, signed the receipt on the strength of which I gave Mr. Wiley the money. And that after repeated application on the part of the L.P.D. Co., Mr. Wiley wrote making an appointment to see the agent & pay the bill, but that when the agent called he found Mr. Wiley had left for America.##I regret very much to report this, but I have no choice. It is quite impossible to doubt the agent's story. I have not yet paid him, as he asked me to wait till I get the receipted acct from you, that I asked you to return. I fear I may yet have to trouble you the other matters in this connection. I have heard nothing yet about the L50 draft, no doubt information on the subject will come to hand.
