TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Messrs Robarts, Lubbock & Company
Date26 September 1893
DescriptionRix points out that under 5 July they have made an entry "Dd New 2 1/2 % £5-10-0", but that they do not give the capital sum. He suspects that they must have included it on the 509 pounds, 10 shillings and seven pence which was bought for the Scientific Relief Fund on 25 February. If this is the case, Rix asks that they make the necessary transfer, as the Scientific Relief Fund is a separate ledger account.

He asks to be advised how the matter stands.
