|Copy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to the General Manager of the Post Office Telephone Service, General Post Office (South), Carter Lane, E.C.
|26 September 1905
|Following their telephone conversation on Saturday Harrison sends a remittance for the amount charged for messages in July and August. Has made further enquiry which confirms that the Societys calls in these two months were very few indeed and asks if a considerable proportion of the charges consisted of items for holding the line longer than the penny limit of three minutes. If this were so it might be an explanation of the discrepancy between the calls charged for and those recorded at the Society's instrument, where no note is made of the duration of calls.
