Letter from Charles Vanderzee to his sister Anne Alston (nee Vanderzee)
November 6, 1806
My dear Anne
I was favoured with your kind letter this morning covering half notes to the amount of 133 L for which I thank you - I certainly should not have written to you for the cash had not Mr Hand positively asserted in his letter that you intended sending me your share by the same days post that he wrote to me - so that you may easily account for my being alarmed
I don't sell grocery Anne, I sell drapery of every description and should you want a nice piece of Irish for your good man or any other article in the linen way I should be happy to receive your orders, and would execute them when I visit Nayland, which I shall be extremely happy to do at Xmas.
I shall at all times be happy to hear from you.
My wife unites with me in love to all
Believe me yours affectly
Note letter "Nov 6 Vanderzee" possibly in George Alston's writing, the address of Henley is possibly Henley on Thames as Anne refers to visiting Henley and Oxford in her letter to her husband George dated 27 April 1809.
