TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Messrs Robarts, Lubbock & Company
Date25 October 1892
DescriptionOn 14 July 1891, Rix wrote asking the Messrs to place £300 of the Brady Bequest on the deposit account of the General Fund. Rix finds this was a mistake on his part. The Society must have a separate deposit account for the Bequest.

Rix asks the Messrs to place the £300 to a deposit account and transfer from the general account to the credit of this Brady deposit account any interest on the £300 which has accrued and been credited to the general account through Rix's error. Once the adjustment is made Rix asks the Messrs to write up all the deposit accounts in the enclosed pass book which should be returned as soon as possible.
