TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to H A Coward, His Majesty's Office of Works
Date15 October 1906
DescriptionWould be glad if Coward could give instructions to his workmen that they are not to accept any requisitions from the Society for work to be done in the building without an order on the official form, signed by Harrison and handed through Coward. There have been several instances where he has found workmen on site carrying out work for which he has given no order and of which he had no notice. Provides a recent example.
