Sir,

I am in receipt of your note of 13th January, 1944.

Since I do not consider the blame in this matter rest with me, I would as you to be good enough to confirm I have actually received the money which you day you paid me in error. As soon as I receive the conformation I will forward you a cheque for the full sum.

I can see not conceivable advantage either to you or to me in refunding the over-issue at the rate of one quarter of the monthly issue, neither can I see the need for any proposal for refund other than the obvious and customary method of paying cash.

I have the honour to be,
Sir,
Your obedient Servant,
GLC
