Salary for a clerk assisting young men studying to become lawyers (weekly and annual)
Excerpt: "'Why, I have the fourth of a room and a passage, and the fourth of a clerk,' returned Traddles. 'Three others and myself unite to have a set of chambers--to look business-like--and we quarter the clerk too. Half-a-crown a week he costs me.'"
Notes: At this rate, the clerk's annual salary would be £26.
