TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, Assistant Secretary of the Royal Society to Messrs Few & Co
Date3 August 1915
Description'Acting on your advice we applied to the mortgagees of 57 Basinghall Street for the arrears of rent and have received the enclosed reply, together with their cheque for £150 on account. I have sent them a receipt for the cheque on account without more and shall be much obliged by your letting us know whether you would recommend us to press now for the balance of the arrears of rent, or to put the matter in your hands to take such action as may seem necessary. In the former case perhaps you would be good enough to suggest the form of our reply to the letter under reference, which kindly return.'
