Notes:

"A letter from the late Mr. Alfred Hill, dated 1926, accompanies the guarantee. In this Mr. Hill briefly outlines the history of this violin, which he describes as "an old friend of our firm, it having passed through our hands after divers intervals during the last forty years . . . . The fiddle has much to commend it, more especially its fine quality of tone.""
