As there will probably be a reprint or new Edition of Wallace’s life I think it will to[sic] tell you of an erroneous statement on page 3 of the 1st Volume which should be corrected. It concerns Hamworth church. The main body of the present church was built in 1815 [] Mr Henry Perkins did not acquire Hamworth Park till 1827-- he died in 1855 and was succeeded by his son Mr Algernon Perkins who (I think it was in 1844) repaired the church and added the apse at the East End. I was for some years churchwarden & have lived & owend property in the parish for 40 years.
Faithfully yours | Geo F Pollock [signature]
