TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to W B Keen
Date15 October 1896
DescriptionIn reply to Keen's letter of yesterday, Harrison shall be glad to see him on Monday or whenever it suits Keen to call. He will do his best to have something for Keen to look at but he has been obliged by the great pressure of his special work to leave the accounts almost untouched for some time. Today he has been disappointed in making some progress with them by the absence of the clerk due to illness. He fears there is small chance of the ledger being posted by Monday but should be glad to go into the different accounts a little with Keen as he has not had opportunity of investigating them with anyone acquainted with them.

Once in the summer Keen suggested that he might be able to spare Harrison some assistance for writing up the books and if he finds he is able to do so next week, he would be very grateful.
