Adam, A. & Co.

XI/38/0, 1 box

Bankers and agents to Lloyd's, based in Boulogne. Many of the letters are routine business, requesting NMR to accept letters of credit given to their clients, acknowledging receipts from NMR for payments of the same, and informing them that they have honoured NMR's clients' letters of credit. Some of these letters include specimen signatures. A. Adam & Co. also appear to have been involved in shipping and forwarding. For example, many letters from the latter part of 1837 to 1839 deal with the arrangements necessary for salvaging bottles of quicksilver from a wrecked ship that was travelling from Cadiz to NMR in London. The company also received money and personal effects of the Rothschilds in France, arranging for a permit for Sir Anthony's carriage to leave Boulogne, for the forwarding of a harness for Baron James, and organising the acceptance and forwarding of Cullen with five trunks of 50,000 sovereigns, for instance.
