"On the same date, March 22, 1916, a communication signed in a like manner as the aforesaid notice to the claimant. was transmitted to the Comptroller, among other things requesting that the deposit of $340.25 submitted with claimants bid be forfeited. The records of the security deposit clerk of this department show such deposit forfeited as of April 4, 1916."

In accordance with this the deposit of $340.25 was withdrawn from the security deposit fund and deposited to the credit of the Sinking Fund for the redemption of City Debt No. 1.

After an examination made by the Bureau of Law and Adjustment of this department, it is recommenderl that the sum of $244.22 be refunded. part of a security deposit of $340.25 made on December 29, 1915, by the New York and New Jersey Produce Company
