Description'Dear Sirs,
Our audit is approaching and in examining the vouchers, our accountant misses the bought notes, which, so far as I can find, were never sent to us. Can you tell me if this was the case, & can you help me in the matter? They are as follows:
Bought note for £4889 Goschens, bought Decr [December] 31, 1888 and for £259-16-6 S.E. Railwy [South Eastern Railway] Stock bought Feb. [February] 13, 1889
Believe me, yours truly
Herbert Rix
Asst Sec RS [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
