His total liibilities wore put down at 158 and his assets at L 42, his principal creditors being Mrs. Sayers and Mrs. George, his wife and daughter, who had obtained an order for maintenance. It appeared that just after filing, a cheque for LIG, his salary from Government, became payable to Sayers, and the trustee eventually was given possession of this cheque.
