John Harrison Yallop's account book: expenses, showing upkeep of imprisoned debtor

Yallop was an important money lender in Norwich.  His debtors included his brother-in-law Nathaniel Bolingbroke. 

When debtors were imprisoned at the suit of a money lender, that creditor was responsible for paying their upkeep.  This page of expenses shows Yallop paying for the upkeep of an unnamed imprisoned debtor.
