414. Robert Baldwin to Hannah Bloomfield, 23 May 1828*
May 23 1828
Our usual time for making up accounts is after the 30th of June: yours were made up in that period in last years; and it would be very inconvenient to make it up again until after our usual taking of stock at the end of June. However I have examined the state of the accounts which I can ascertain with tolerable accuracy from our warehouse-book, and I find that the quantity of stock sold since the last statement is about a hundred pounds—leaving still a balance due to us of more than £220—
Under these circumstances, we are compelled, with pain and reluctance, to decline making any advance.
I remain, Madam, faithfully yours
Address: Miss Bloomfield / 41 North Bank / Regents Park
