To Miss M. M. Wharton
For rent of room, used as lodgings for one month from Jany
1st to the 31st  inclusive $30.00
(The above has been altered from
20 to $30)
I certify that the above alteration was made by me, the sum
of $20 heretofore paid being insufficient to obtain quarters of a respectable
character for this matron.
