Timaru Herald, 3 May 1897, Page 2
District Judge Kettle takes a decided stand on the subject of tradesmen keeping proper books, whenever a trader appears before him in his bankruptcy jurisdiction. He said the other day : " The proper keeping of books is the only true guide a man has to tell whether he is rising or sinking. If a man goes to sea in a ship without a compass, and strikes a rock, he is very much to blame, and if a man starts business and does not keep proper books he is also very much to blame. The books must disclose his proper financial position."
