Date26 March 1889
DescriptionThere is a 'radical defect' in the water supply to their bath, which they request be fixed if it can be done so at small expense. The cause of the difficulty appears to be a bubble of air lodged in some part of the pipe, and it is proposed that the pipe is perhaps too level at some point in its course. An intelligent person is requested to look at the problem.
