Title

Letter from D. Herbert Ogden to Colin Agnew

Date 26 Nov 1925
Description

Copy record of a letter from D. Herbert Ogden to Colin Agnew, outlining American expenses for 1924-1925 in Pounds Sterling, including passage money, cash advances, insurance, packing, freight, money advanced by the firm of Duveen and other expenses. Ogden raises the fact that £6,000 spent on one trip remains unaccounted for, blaming J. Dunn-Yarker for a lack of accounting. He hopes that Agnew "will be able to pull something big off by the end of the year" and refers to recent illness Ogden has apparently suffered.
