This letter, dated 1804, may be of interest to those with a connection to Somerset. I think that the best thing to do is to write the letter as it reads, so here goes: ''T.S. Joliffe Esq., Hammer Down House, Somerset......''Frome 3rd.October 1804''......''Sir, In consequence of receiving a letter from Lieut. Col. Travers for the F.S.V. Infantry to hold themselves in readiness for Inspection & afterwards to be reviewed by Brigadier Genr. Moore on Monday the 8th. Inst:, in the Enclosed Letter I have an order for the Waggons, Carts & Extra to be on the Ground at the same time, & also to say that it will be necessary for a Deputy Lieutenant or Magistrate to be on the Ground. I have the Honor to be ......Sir ...Your most Obedient Servant.......Ion(I think) Olive Capt. FSVJ (I think).'' Inside is written a reply:''Ammerdown 3rd.Oct.1804.......Sir, I beg leave to acknowledge the receipt of your letter informing me that the F.S.V. Infantry are to be inspected by Gen. Moore on Monday next, that the Waggons and Carts are to be (can't read it), & that a Deputy Lt. is expected to attend. This I would endeavour to do, had you mentioned either the hour or place appointed for the above purpose. I therefore (can't read it) request you will have the goodness to give me some further information upon these points, when I will attend unless prevented by some unfo(u)rseen accident. The letter you mention to be enclosed has not reached my hand. I am Sir......Capt. Olive F.S.V.I.''The photographs show the tears made by the removal of the wax seal. The sheet of paper measures 15.75x9.9 inches. Apart from the tears made by the wax seal it's in excellent condition. There are no watermarks in the paper.
