Description

Note the cash movements, on this page alone Townsend removes well over 500 pounds in cash, an astronomical amount. There also large gaps in the periods he makes any transactions in his ledgers. Closer analysis is required to determine if some of the entries on this page are in Townsend's business partner Henry Oakman's handwriting, instead of Townsend's.
