Dear Sir,

We think that you will find that the enclosed is self explanatory and you will note that the cheque is made out to Bearer. The Directors and Staff would like to take the opportunity of expressing their great sympathy with you in the anxious time through which you are passing, and in which we share.

Your Son was one of our most popular and brightest lads.

We are,
Yours truly,

As Assessments have now been made for the period concerned, we assume that where we have not been called upon to recover Tax, either nothing is due or other arrangements have been made.
We therefore set out hereunder Statement of account.

Amount held to [deleted] your [/deleted] [inserted] his [/inserted] credit on a/c of Tax December 1942 34-4-0
Amount deducted on a/c of Tax November and December 1943 –
