We all know about Leslie Stephen and the drama on Wednesdays over the weekly books: see MoB, 2nd edn, p.144.  After carrying on like 1 o’clock, “he wrote out the cheque”.

I don’t understand how the tradesmen get paid if only one cheque is written out.  Is the cheque written out to “cash”, Vanessa goes to the bank & cashes it, and goes round to each tradesman, paying them in cash?
