TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to the Secretary, Geological Society
Date[7] October 1902
DescriptionThe Society has entered into a contract with the General Post Office for a telegraphic service, and in order to connect the Society's apartments with the exchange, a wire must be placed from Piccadilly circus across the area on that side of the building and through the Geological Society. The connection will involve no cutting away or structural alterations. Will be glad if the Geological Society agree to this proposal.
