TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Messrs Harrison & Sons
Date6 April 1905
DescriptionThe Messrs letter of 31 March regarding Sir F Bramwell's name does not throw much light on the situation as none of the explanations offered account for the fact that only lately have complaints reached the society of the weekly postcard being addressed to Sir Frederick Bramwell, so that for more than a year after his death, the despatch must have been discontinued, and for some obscure reason resumed a few months ago. Trusts the Messrs have had the post card list thoroughly revised. This incident seems to point to the clear necessity of simplifying their dispatch lists and Harrison suggests how this might be done. Trusts they will make such arrangements.
