Hi,
I'm unclear about a sentence (not sure if it's an expression) which is "have to come and go on". The following is the context where it appears (quoted from The Franchise affair by Tey Josphine).
"I think it would be best if our financial position were made clear to you, and for that you should get in touch with old Mr. Crowle's solicitors in London, who manage our affairs. I shall write to them explaining that you are to be given full details, so that you may know how much we have to come and go on, and can make corresponding arrangements for the spending of it in defence of our good name. It is not exactly the way we had planned to spend it"

Thanks in advance!

It appears to mean 'how much money we have at our disposal to spend, for our specific purposes'. We don't know from this context what these specific purposes are, but there appears to be some legal matter.

If the bold part in the original is an expression, I'm not familiar with it.
