Inspecting Officers’ Bill

188. An inspecting officer cannot take advances on account of office contingent charges. He should provide himself with a portion of his permanent advance, and recoup himself from time to time by presenting at the different Treasuries contingent bills, in the ordinary form, for recovery of contract or countersigned contingent charges, as the case may be. Thus, in the case of countersigned contingent charges, one detailed bill may adjust money drawn at more than one Treasury ; and in this case it will be well to require details at the foot of the bills of the places of payment of the several encashed bills as well as their date and amounts. But the amounts drawn will all be taken as final payments and not as advances.
