TitleCopy letter from an unknown correspondent, to Messrs Drake & Gorham, 66 Victoria Street, S.W.
Date27 September 1894
DescriptionThe lamps delivered the other day are different in shape and size from those the Society has hitherto been using in consequence of which they do not go into the lanterns supplied by the Messrs for the basement. They need not change those the Messrs have sent as they will do for lighting the house but they must have say, a dozen of the old pattern for use in the store room.
