TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to J Hardie, Engineer, Post Office Telegraphs, 10 Market Street, Mayfair
Date21 October 1902
DescriptionIn reply to Hardie's note, it was necessary for Harrison to have a statement in writing, which he asked for last week. Is therefore obliged for Hardie's letter, which he must now communicate to the Geological Society. In the meantime it rests with the Post Office authorities to obtain the necessary facilities for bringing their wires into the building. Thinks it will save time and trouble if Hardie will make an application to the Secretaries of the Chemical Society for permission to bring the wire across their basement.
