TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Miss Chambers
Date11 November 1898
DescriptionEncloses wages cheques and Chambers' handling book, which Harrison asks to be made up to date and returned as soon as possible. Apologizes that the Society does not admit of his assigning Chambers a private room for her work. Suggests the anti-room for interviews. Trusts that the occasion for lengthy conversations will be few and far between now that the system on which the work is to be carried on has been so clearly laid down by the Committee and that the time which has hitherto been spent on prolonged interviews may be saved for the immediate work of the catalogue.

A few days ago an official communication of the divisions of the Committee was sent to Chambers. Would be glad of an acknowledgement of it.
