LMS Route: Birmingham New Street to Lichfield

Sutton Coldfield Station: lnwrsc4274

Confirmation that the post William Rivitt is 'now filling' is 'in class three' which begs the question whether William has challenged his salary rate

Message sent to William arranging for him to meet an Inspector whilst a stand-in has been arranged as cover

Dated 7th March 1911. The message appears to read: To Rivitt, Smethwick. Arrange to go Sutton Coldfield (shorthand?) tomorrow morning to meet (?) ? inspector (?) who will have arrived (?) by 8:48am train. I have given instructions to (?) Relief Clerk ? to be sent to take charge of Smethwick tomorrow. You will of course remain at Sutton ? Signed ?
