DescriptionConcerned to hear that foreman needs to open the drain, and leaving the place uninhabitable. Having given instructions that the work of the Royal Society could not be disrupted in July, can only assume that the foreman has misunderstood his instructions. Please provide clear instructions to the foreman and ask him to make direct contact with Harrison regarding arrangements. The foreman has also mentioned that he needs access to the basement for which there has been no warning.
