Abstract

"Mr. Dredge has sent to Mr. Edison an account for the advances of money which the former has made you since you have been in London. I find that Mr. Dredge has advanced you fifty-six pounds. In addition to this, on the same paper is noted an advance made you by Col. Gouraud of thirty pounds. Mr. Dredge makes the account up to the 1st of December. By the same mail we received from Col. Gouraud a letter enclosing a memorandum of moneys advanced to you as follows: [list of dates and amounts follows]. ### These two accounts do not agree. Mr. Dredge turns in expenses for you to the 1st of December to the extent of £84-19-11. We attach a copy of his account, which shows you to have a balance on hand of £[unclear]-0-1. From Col. Gouraud's statement you should have on hand an additional sixty pounds, that being the difference between the amount with which Mr. Dredge credits Col. Gouraud and the amount advanced to you by Col. Gouraud in accordance with his own statement. Kindly explain this account so that we can get it straight in our books." Yours truly, AO Tate
