TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Messrs Robarts, Lubbock & Company
Date7 April 1891
DescriptionRix asks if he will rectify the two errors in their General account. Firstly, he states that the three pounds and three shillings on 8 January should be three pounds only, with the shillings to be returned to the bankers and a reminder given that the annual subscription is three pounds and not three guineas. Secondly, under 15 January, that 5000 pounds of the Great Northern Railway stock belongs to the Scientific Relief Fund, and 97 pounds and ten shillings should be added to that account.
