Archive reference number NG6/6/410

Letter to William Law [Treasury]

Date 16 Mar 1880

Sarah Cooper, former Assistant Housemaid and now an invalid, is grateful for the money provided to support her and would like to recieve it in weekly instalments rather than one lump sum. Perhaps the money may be placed in the safekeeping of the Clergyman of the parish or another trustworthy person who can instigate this weekly provision. Cooper is unable to write, her wishes were given verbally to Mrs Ackerman, Head Housemaid at the Gallery.
