Date18 December 1902
DescriptionCannot connect to the telephone exchange and would like to know when he shall be in communication. As soon as communication is established would like a competent person to thoroughly explain to him and the servants, the working of the somewhat complicated switch board fixed in the lodge. A statement for using the switchboard and its connections in the building would be a great advantage.
