TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to H C Carter, The London Electric Supply Corporation Limited
Date11 November 1902
DescriptionWith reference to Carter's letter of 16 October on the subject of the current supplied to the Royal Society, and the question whether the total quantity of current consumed could be equally apportioned between the London Electric Supply Corporation and the St James Company, Harrison could not give an answer at present as it would involve a complete alteration of the Society's installation, but as a matter of fact, for the last two quarter the amount paid to Carter's company has equalled, if not exceeded that, paid to the St James Company.
