Knight of Barrells
Letter from Edward Cooper at Bognor to the Rev. H.C. Knight referring to his having been agent of the Barrels estates for many years, and his uncle before him, and soliciting from him the favour of continuing that appointment. He had come to Bognor that morning, only to find that he (Mr. Knight) had left. Should he be pleased to give him the post, he could rely on the punctual and faithful discharge of his duties. Having been employed as land-agent for more than 25 years, he did not doubt his ability to give every satisfaction and could produce the highest testimonials. Signed: Edw. Cooper. P.S. His residence was at `Henley-in-Arden, Warwickshire'.
