TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, Assistant Secretary of the Royal Society to Messrs Few & Co., 19 Surrey Street, Strand, WC
Date2 February 1915
Description'I fear a reply to your letter of November last relating to the Power of Attorney in the matter of the Steveson Bequest has been long delayed, but in view of the fact that the next dividend does not fall due until April the matter has not been treated as urgent, I am now to ask you to be good enough to bespeak the fresh Power of Attorney in this matter, including both Mr Robert Few and Mr C E Few. If, as I presume, the Seal of the Society is required to the Power, the documents should reach here before the 18th instant, when the next meeting of Council will be held.'
