[postscript] Ought not Mr Stiff to cheque the fittings &c by the Inventory & see that the repairs are all right?

Furlong Tring 5 Oct

Dear Mr. Vaisey.

I went to Blkh. yesterday and asked for the inventory of fittings fixtures - giving notice I was going so to do in order to take them over. After waiting a considerable I was told the Mr. Hylton who does our part of the concern was away & they could not be found.

I saw Mr. Harrison and he told me the inventory had been sent by him to his solicitor to be forwarded to you - so I concluded you would get it. Consequently I came back and have not taken over the inventory. I hardly know what to do about it for I shall not go to Blkhth. again till Tuesday and then it will be to receive

a lot of furniture. Surely we ought to agree fittings &c with Inventory before paying for them. I also enclose a letter from Dyer Valuer fixing the amount at 46 £ 11/-- Are we to pay our share of Dyer Bill to Mr. Harrison's solicitor? The amount is £1..12..10d, making with the other £ 48 - 3..10. Yrs truly

Dear Sir,

16 Kidbrook Grove

It is not usual to send the Inventory Valuation until the cheque is received but as you wish it we enclose the same. Kindly send us a cheque per return & your undertaking to procure the assignment of lease to be executed by Col. Bray

Yours truly Munns & Longden

yesterday morning. I have written to him by this post to tell him to meet me at 2 o/k {o clock} at the house tomorrow to see what repairs are necessary and to go over the list should I be possessed of it. If you have not got the list perhaps Mr. Stiff could go & fetch it if you will write by tonights post & tell him where it is to be had & he

can bring it to Blkheath to me. Will you tell us whether we are to pay the cheque to you or to Mr Harrison for fittings?--and whether it is to be paid before going over the list & seeing the items are correct and which amount is to be paid. I have written Mr. Dyer's cheque for our moiety.

Yrs sincly

Charlotte Bray

I leave by the 8-40 train.
