TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Mr J Street, Office of Works, War Office, Pall Mall, S.W.
Date19 June 1895
DescriptionThe people at work on the Albany have allowed the gutters to become blocked and today the Society is flooded with water coming through the ceiling of the Committee Room. The men are now at work clearing the gutters.

Wonders if perhaps Mr Kendrick gave them a word of caution it might have some effect in future. Wonders if Street can make the men pay for the damage they have done.
