TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Mrs Maria Gordon, 321 Union Street, Aberdeen
Date3 June 1896
DescriptionEncloses an account from Meisenbach Riffarth & Company [not attached], which has been sent to the Society in addition to their account as per estimate; 670 marks. Upon enquiring to this extra charge the Company stated that Dr Schaefer had ordered to make those two figures again, because their drawings were not quite correct.

Asks Gordon whether the new blocks were made at her desire as it hardly seems a case for payment by the Society.
