therefrom that a sum of £ 200/- only was advanced to Captain

it would appear that a sum of £ 100 /- was advanced on the
4th September 1919 and £ 200/- on 15th September 1919. These
advances have also been accounted for by Captain Hedgecock
long since.
In the original accounts rendered by Captain Bray, the
following amounts were shown to be in his hands.
Rs.33/12/6 in Indian Currency.
£ 235/16/11 in sterling.
Of the former amount, a sum of Rs.2o/- was refundable
;o Captain Bray which would reduce the balance in Indian
lurrency to Rs. 13/12/6. As regards the balance held in
jterling, Captain Bray could not account for £ 35/13/5, and
Lesired that this sum should be written off, thereoy leaving
1 balance of £ 200/5/6 ( I attach a copy of letter Ho.6325/553
