Scope and content

8 Grosvenor Crescent, S.W. - Originally enclosing the draft of the [marriage] settlement and the undertaking [by himself and his wife] to pay a yearly allowance of eight hundred pounds to Robert until either of their deaths, when he will receive twenty thousand pounds; this was his wife's settlement and his own and is now assured to Robert in addition to any other sum they may leave. The policy Robert settles on Elizabeth is worth fourteen thousand pounds now, and has prospects of reaching a large sum 'if he lives to be old, or even elderly'. Encloses a cutting from today's "Times" ["The Money Market", "Times" 36136, p 4] with under-linings in pen, showing that the average increase in policies in the Equitable [and Mutual Life Assurance Society] is over one hundred percent.
