TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Messrs Drake & Gorham, 66 Victoria Street, S.W.
Date6 March 1897
DescriptionAdverting to the Messrs letter of the 25th February, Harrison has made enquiries and cannot trace anywhere the item charged in the Messrs account of £1 in August for making good plaster work, which the Messrs say was done for them by Messrs Styles & Company. The housekeeper does not remember any firm of that name having done work at the Society and suggests the entry is a mistake for work done for some other Society in Burlington House.

Harrison would be obliged if the Messrs would look into this matter and if they still find the work was for the Society he would like to know the exact part of the building in which the work was done.
