TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Messrs Robart & Company
Date13 March 1889
DescriptionAsks that the enclosed pass book for the general account be written up, and it will be collected by messenger at 10.30am tomorrow. Rix asks what stock amount 334 pounds, eight shillings, and six pence, on 19 February is, as they have three kinds of London & North West Railway stock and he cannot make it match any of them. He notes their information in the pass-book as 'always the very scantiest possible', and that the kind of stock should at least be noted.

Rix further states that the difficulties of keeping the cash book are worsened by their never sending the counterfoils of dividend warrants, which used to be sent regularly. They will need them shortly due to their use in a claim for return of income tax which they are about to make.
