Text source

Mr Robert Hog was part of the network of the Rotterdam based merchant, Andrew Russell [SSNE 143]. Hog was instructed by James Brown in Danzig to take money for Russell in Rotterdam to Andrew Marshall [SSNE 1007] in Konigsberg. The letter does not say if he went to Rotterdam, or if he couriered the cash between Danzig and Konigsberg (which would make more sense)
