Life:

However, Rowe continued to provide goods for JW into September [#08856]. The case, which had originally been referred to JW's solicitor Theodore Frederick Allingham, eventually came with JW's bankruptcy papers to James Anderson Rose in 1879 [#08862]. The bill by this time was £12.9.2 [#11926].
