3pp., foolscap 8vo, with the fourth page carrying the description of the document when folded into the usual packet. Bifolium. In fair condition, on aged paper. With embossed tax stamp and circular stamp in black ink dating the document to London, 24 September 1849. The agreement, on the first two pages, is 'Between George Hibbert of Albany Piccadilly in the County of Middlesex Esquire of the one part and George Krehmer of Albanyaforesaid Esquire of the other part.' It is signed 'George Hibbert', with 'Witness Charles Sprigges'. The whole of the third page carries the 'Inventory and Valuation of sundry Furniture and Effects the Property of George Hibbert Esq. at Letter L.

Hibbert's father was one of the prime movers of the West India Dock Company in London, on whose board he himself remained until 1877. Lt.-Col. Edward George Hibbert, whose splendid library was sold in 1902, also had his London address at L4 Albany, and was presumably the younger Hibbert's son.
