On December 23rd I returned to you for rectification Income Tax demand on the late Walter White's salary. I have heard nothing since, and am waiting to draw the cheque. Perhaps I ought to have sent the letter to the Surveyor of Taxes, but I trust you have had the goodness to forward it to the proper quarter if any surmise is correct.
