Accounts and Solicitors' Bills
Accounts and Solicitors' Bills.
After further deliberation your Committee decided not to incur the expense of having an accountant in to examine the books of the Company, as they could find no particular point to look into, and it appears useless to go into the ordinary business accounts, which have already been checked and audited.
The solicitors' bills have been looked into, and a lump sum offered to Messrs. Mackrell & Co. to settle those owing by your Company up to the 31st March, 1884.
[This offer having been declined, your Committee suggest that the bills be examined and the costs taxed.]
