Descripción

1p., 4to. Bifolium, with reverse of second leaf with Dover postmark, and addressed by Jones to 'Mr Norwood | to the left at the | Queen's head | Ashford Kent'. Good, on lightly-aged paper. The letter reads: 'Dover Castle Nov - 17 - 824 | Mr. Norwood | Sir | I beg to inform you I was arrested yesterday & sent to this place - My son in law & myself would have been up to have settled the rent, but now it must remain till I get out - I hope you will not let any one have, or touch the house. Mr. Knocker has not acted to me like a Gentleman, & has much distressed me by sending me here, my daughter is expected to be confined every hour which is a great trouble to me - | I am Sir | Your obed. Servant | Sarah Jones'. Docketed: '17 Novr 1824 | Mrs. S Jones'. The Norwood family were of long standing in Ashford; C. M. Norwood became MP for Hull. Knocker appears to have been a Dover solicitor.
