Forgery & Bank

Letter published in John Bull (newspaper)


Sir,


It was only this morning, that I had an opportunity of seeing your paper of last Saturday, in which you mention the detected attempt at an extensive forgery on the commercial bank...

It is ascertained that the forgeries, if not actually committed by by the native writers and accountants in a merchant's office, are generally effected through their agency, their depositions to intimate handwriting and the smallness of their salaries, make them easy instruments for such practices. Let the letters or autographs of the constituent be carefully kept out of reach of all natives or subordinate clerks or writer... They who know the nature of a Karanee's duties in a merchant's office, will agree with me. that it is not necessary he should see  the letters of the constituent, no, acting, as he does under a superior clerk, that he should know when a balance is intended to be fixed for the year, or when an account is liable to current drafts...

I am, Sir,
Your obdt. Servant,
Columbus
