Where the very nature of the employment necessitates a partial or total delegation of the agent's authority, the rule prohibiting delegation can have no application1. Similarly, where unforeseen circumstances arise, the necessity of the case may make it imperative to delegate, and authority so to do will be implied2. That authority will not be implied, however, unless the exigencies of the situation preclude communication at the material time between the agent and his principal3.
