TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Messrs Trübner
Date7 November 1887
DescriptionRix has examined Trübner's account sales and finds it correct. He asks them to send a cheque for £33 without delay as the Society is closing its account for the annual audit. Rix was under the impression that 25% was the usual trade discount. He cannot recall that any arrangement was made by which Trübner allows more than that for separate papers but asks them not to let this query prevent the sending of the cheque as he is sure their is a simple explanation.
