The question of the Lease of the 16 Dorset Street was considered. The Lease expired on the 29th September 1919 and Mr Garrett reported that he had seen Mr Leslie Lock respecting the renewal. Mr Lock proposed that it should be renewed for seven years at an increased rental of One hundred pounds making the total rent £750 per annum. As there was no alternative it was decided to accept the increased rental, but to ask Messrs Ward Lock & Co to make the term seven years with the option of a further seven years.

Under clause 80 of the Articles of Association the Directors have power to appoint an additional Director for the current year. Mr Eames therefore proposed that Captain Frank Anthony Garrett be made a Director, and this was seconded by Mr Arthur Tanner, and carried unanimously, and that his signature be registered at the Bank for signing cheques.

A letter from Messrs Weir & Roberts was read in connection with the loan of £1000 from Miss R R Weir. It informed us that Miss R R Weir had died and that in consequence of the bulk of the deceasedís Estate having been left in legacies which were due for early payment, and the heavy estate duties it was imperative to realize her estate and asking us whether we wished to pay off the £1000 at once or as an alternative Mr W F Weir (deceasedís brother) intimated his willingness to take over the Bill as from the 1st October.

It was decided to accept this kind offer and a Promissory Note for £1000 at twelve months date from 1st October 1919 was made out and signed to the order of Mr William Fyfe Weir which was signed by Mr Garrett, Mr Eames and the Secretary and posted to Messrs Weir & Roberts
