A ticket of admission to two talks in 1858 connected with commerce and commercial-law, focusing on custom legislation and mercantile laws and commerce; held at the London Institution. Travers Lectures: these lectures were so called because they were paid for by the interest obtained from the Travers Testimonial Fund. John Ingram Travers (1820-1866) who, from 1844 to 1863 was head of the firm of Joseph Travers and Sons, Ltd., sugar refiners, had been active in work connected with the reform of the Customs system. In recognition of this, he received a testimonial, and he decided that this money should be given for some useful purpose. The subscribers to the Travers Fund met on 2 August 1854 and agreed to put the money that had been collected into the hands of trustees who were to invest it in public funds. The interest was to be used for the delivery of a lecture, or lectures, on subjects connected with commerce or commercial law both of Britain and other countries.
