TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to William Haine
Date18 October 1907
DescriptionHarrison sends thanks for his letter with designs for electroliers, but notes that if it had come a few hours earlier it may have assisted him in progressing the work.

He cannot now have the work carried out as promptly as he had hoped, as the Officers of the Society believe the relighting of the tea room needs to be done under the supervision of an Advisory Committee, which requires Harrison to draw up a scheme and specification to be submitted before any work can begin. He therefore asks that Haine visit so they can discuss the matter in more detail, and notes that he now would like the lights more distributed than formerly suggested.
