TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to B Fuller, 137 Rucklidge Avenue, Harlesden
Date1 October 1891
DescriptionRix states that their audit is due again, and he has discovered that when Fuller's engagement came to and end, he neglected to get Fuller's receipt for money transmitted to him. Rix has receipts up to 1 November 1890, but none for the new session. He asks if Fuller will sign and return the enclosed receipt to satisfy their accountant and auditors, adding that although they have the cancelled cheques these will not serve the purpose.

If Fuller believes that he has already sent the receipt, Rix suggests that it must have been mislaid, and instructs him to add the word 'duplicate' to the receipt. Rix asks how the world is treating Fuller, adding 'Not so well as you deserve I am certain, but better, I hope, than it did a while since'.
