See his entry in the Oxford DNB. 2pp, 12mo. On bifolium. In good condition, lightly aged. Folded twice. Signed ‘William Black.’ He is enclosing a cheque (not present) ‘for the rent of Kilchrenan House’ in Argyle: ‘We enjoyed our stay there very much; & found the house most comfortable. I trust we left it in as good condition as we found it.’ Despite this he admits to ‘one or two small breakages’, regarding which he presumes he may ‘settle up with Mr. Bruce Robertson’ when he hears from him. ‘I wished to do so before leaving; but he could not tell me exactly the amount.’
