Moody to Under-Secretary of State
Topographical Office, War Dept
4 New Street, Spring Gardens
25th Octr 1858
I have the honour to state that the amount of my travelling and other incidental expenses such as Postage telegrams and cab hire chargeable to the Colonial Service upon which I have been engaged since the 17h August amount to £58.5s.4d and I shall feel obliged by its being paid to my credit at Messrs Cox & Co. Charing Cross. In this I have not included the personal allowance per diem as I do not think it should be asked for if the Colonial pay be sanctioned from the date of commencing to do duty vide my letter of this day's date.
I have the honour to be Sir,
Yr most obedient humble Servant
R.C. Moody
Col. R.E.
