TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Arthur Keen
Date22 October 1898
DescriptionOver the last four months the Office of Works have been undertaking sanitary works in the building which have made a great mess of the decoration, which the Society had done under Keen's supervision two years ago. Harrison has much trouble in getting the clerk of the Works to consent to make good these damages and has received authority to call upon Keen to go round the building and make a regular specification of the renovations necessary, so that Harrison may make a regular claim on the Office. Asks Keen to call at his earliest convenience.
