Below is a basic semi-diplomatic transcription of a bill/receipt to Lady Jane Stanhope (Townshend). Henry Clay Folger purchased the Bacon-Townshend papers in October 1925 from Mr. Frank Marcham, a London rare book and manuscript dealer. This transcription was originally completed as part of the first Practical Paleography Series, sponsored by EMMO
