TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Messrs Robarts, Lubbock & Company, 15 Lombard Street, E.C.
Date26 June 1894
DescriptionRix asks for an explanation as to why the amount paid on the Duke of Norfolk's Mortgage on 9 June is 203 pounds, 11 shillings and three pence, as it should be 203 pounds, 17 shillings and six pence; namely, 12,000 pounds at three and a half percent, minus tax of six pounds, two shillings and six pence.

He speculates that the error arose from copying the amount from the December payment, when an additional six shillings and three pence was deducted. If Rix is correct, he asks that they hand it on to the agent from whom they received the money.
