TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Mr Haine
Date25 January 1906
DescriptionHarrison writes to confirm their discussions of the previous day and request that work be begun at once on: renewal of the floor plug in the Council Room; removal of telephone bell at the front of the lodge; investigation of the telephone from Harrison's office to the Government Grant Office.

He suggests it may be best to defer fitting the table lamp with flexible from the side bay at the end in case they decide it is desirable to fit a wall plug at that end. He also confirms a request for an estimate for fitting table lamps to the cases in the middle of the library. Harrison has written to Mr Montgomerie concerning wiring under the floor of the library, and will communicate further once he has heard from him.
