TitleCopy letter from an unknown correspondent, to Mr H Lindfield, Portland Works, Portland Road, Notting Hill
Date2 July 1888
DescriptionThe Royal Society Treasurer, John Evans, believes the forty seven pounds quoted to be slightly high, but his opinion may change once the proposal has been discussed with him. Asks that the full specification is sent before next Thursday so that it may be shown to Evans. Whilst writing up the specifications, Lindfield is asked to rectify any possible overestimates, providing the quality of the work does not suffer as a result.

The six pounds quoted for Porter's rooms is considered reasonable by Evans.
