Thursday 1st January 1846

“Edward Heskett, fellow clerk, had to leave a letter at the White Horse corner of Dean Street and Oxford Street, to which place I accompanied him thither and there had a glass of ale at his expense.”

  1. I’m very excited to be reading this diary 170 years after it was written.
    In an attempt to find out more about Nathaniel’s world, I have tried to locate his co-worker Edward Heskett in the 1841 and 1851 censuses, but he is proving elusive. There are a number of Heskeths but I can’t see a Heskett who matches.
