There is an error in this reading: "2s." is read "two silver", but should be "two shillings".
Thanks for pointing this out. Mistakes like this one fall well within out 99% accuracy mark, so unless the original reader would want to go back and change it, this wouldn't be a correction that we would normally make to a cataloged project.
