SNW0201 This is a full medieval 1764 letter double sided sent from Edinburgh of a failing business partnership and the sender being forced to settle all the debts related to this which he is expressing his embarrassment and fury - It has come from a legal collection of Victorian letters but this appears the oldest in the collection as it is date 1764 so a genuine medieval collectors item from Edinburgh - It is folded where posted - has one very small sellotape area approx 1.5cms to repair = some edge fraying and aging which of course one would expect so some darkening to edges etc - graded vg minus to vg which for over 250 years ago is great if you allow - please be aware the letter is too big for my scanner so the letter itself is bigger and more complete than the images above - the original owner typed a transcript of the letter which I have scanned for your examination too - I believe fear of owing money from the 1700s and potential imprisonment for Debtors Prison adds to the tone of the letter- please note the evidence of what remains from the seal from the 1700s too - much is written in Olde English which further heightens the character of this fascinating medieval Edinburgh ephemera.
