TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Mr Street
Date26 October 1889
DescriptionRix sent Mr Street's office a request on 16 October asking that several sash-lines be renewed, and he is writing again to state that the windows are in a 'critical state' and it was only down to great care that they did not come off in the hands of the window cleaners a couple of days ago. Rix further requests that the skylights in the staircase be seen to, as rain has been coming in.
