TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Messrs Robarts, Lubbock & Company
Date24 November 1891
DescriptionRix reports that one of the auditors at their recent annual audit wished to have evidence that the 1000 pounds policy in the Atlas Assurance office was in Messrs Robarts, Lubbock & Company's possession, as it had not been entered into their list of securities for the audit, due to it not being a negotiable security. The auditor in question consented to sign the balance sheet on the condition that a certificate was obtained to the effect that they hold the policy, and so Rix asks that they sent such a note or certificate.
