TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Messrs Robarts, Lubbock & Company, 15 Lombard Street, E.C.
Date6 April 1894
Description'Dear Sirs,
The Government Grant pass-book which you returned this morning made up to date appears to be wrong by £14-10-7. In your letter of the 6th February you informed me that you had transferred that amount from the Society's "General" to "Government Grant" account, being interest on deposit placed to the latter account in error. This transfer does not appear in the pass-book returned this morning. The pass-book is inclosed herewith, and I shall be glad if you will adjust the matter and return it.
Yours truly,
H Rix
Asst. Sec. RS. [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
