TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to the Managing Director, The British Vacuum Cleaner Company Limited, Parson's Green Lane, S.W.
Date31 May 1905
DescriptionExplains why he thinks the Managing Director has been mis-informed regarding the stair felt placed in their hands for cleaning. Thinks this sort of matter should be looked more closely into as it is not likely the Society should continue to place work in their hands at just double the cost they ordinarily pay. Hopes they may assume the carpet will be delivered promptly.
