deciphering occupation
« on: Monday 13 May 19 10:51 BST (UK) »
Hi, what do others think the occupation of James Smith is? I thought it was 'slater', but other S's on the document don't seem similar.
many thanks

I also see 'Slater'.

You don't often find so many variations of one letter in the same document ;D
