Description'Dear Sirs,
The large chair occupied by the President of the Royal Society at the meetings of the Society is very much out of repair, and must be repaired without delay. The chair is one of some historic interest, and I should therefore be much obliged if you could arrange to send a competent person here to inspect it, and to report to me as to what will require to be done, and as to the cost.'
