Most Significant

"...The purchaser is a foreign nobleman, Count de Ville, who effected the purchase himself paying the purchase money in notes ‘over the counter'..."

The Count may have hoped that paying cash would have given him more anonymity. Sadly, in this case it may have made him stand out.

Really, though, this letter is not very helpful to Jonathan and the others. They already know that a number of large, heavy boxes were delivered to this Piccadilly house from Purfleet, and that the Count himself helped to move them. This letter confirms that they probably have the right house, which saves some time that might otherwise have to be spent in further investigation. They also learn the Count's pseudonym ('de Ville') but that ultimately turns out to be of very little use.
