At home all day, Tom removed 1 from the borough to Bartholom’w . Fetched £2, from there took 2 to Mr. Wilson, Do. to Brookes.
This Mr Wilson appears to be a different Wilson from the famous teacher of the Windmill Street School, who is a demonstrator to Joshua Brookes; the name Wilson appears in conjunction with a preparation being sold in the auction of Brookes’ collection in 1828.
Poor Brookes’ school suffered as most private schools did as the Royal College of Surgeons closed the private schools out in favour of the hospital schools and Brookes was forced by financial circumstances to sell his collection and museum.
