TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Messrs Robarts, Lubbock & Company, 15 Lombard Street, E.C.
Date25 September 1901
DescriptionOn referring to the pass-book Harrison finds the balance on the Society's current account is very low. Harrison has a claim for which the Treasurer [Alfred Bray Kempe] has signed a cheque to the amount of about £230 and which it is very desirable to settle as soon as possible. Believes the Treasurer has had some conversation with the Messrs regarding the eventuality of the Society's account being overdrawn and asks if the Messrs are prepared to allow the current account to be overdrawn by a few hundred pounds.
