DescriptionRix notes the enclosure of the Deed of Foundation for the Lawes Agricultural Fund, and Few's draft agenda, with the latter of these to be returned on Wednesday if possible. John Evans, Treasurer of the Royal Society, has asked Rix to remind Few that he has not specified a time for their meeting tomorrow, and asks for this by the evening's post.
