Statement of account issued to Arthur Grubbe for alterations to his trousers, including the conversion of one pair into knee breeches. Arthur was a son of J E Grubbe, Southwold's longest-serving mayor who lived at South Green House (Now Regency House and Greyfriars).
Poignantly, this statement shows the initial 'W' crossed out by hand. It is dated Christmas 1885, the year that William died by cutting his throat.
