"To Ihe Interstate Casualty Company:
"This is to certify that the books and accounts of Mr. Oscar P. McKinzie
were examined by us from time to time in the regular course of business and we

the period covered by the original bond, with interest on that amount.
It ruled that as to all other shortages the plaintiff was not entitled to
recover. The last-mentioned ruling was duly excepted to.
