Theatrical manager (1796?-1860) and poet, manager of Drury Lane and Covent Garden theatres, 1833-48. One page, quarto. Good, but somewhat grubby on lightly-creased, discoloured paper. Reads 'My dear Sir | I do not remember at this moment any point, beyond those we discussed yesterday, that requires adjustment, except the return of £63-4-8 overpaid on the rent account up to July 5th. and the four weeks salaries to your watchmen & firemen from that day up to last Saturday, amounting to £27 - | The balance of the "Warwick Box" is still unpaid.' Signed 'A Bunn'. Calculations, resulting in a 'Deficiency' of £836 8s 0d, on verso of leaf. Initialled draft of Robertson's short reply, dated 5 August 1835, on second leaf of bifoliate, which has suffered some loss from the breaking open of the seal.
