TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Mr W Haine
Date1 April 1908
Description'Dear Mr Haine,
I am sending round our revised estimate and specification to the Committee and hope to get their decision in the course of the week. In the meantime, however, I do not much like the design for the central fitting, and should be rather glad to refer to the one we marked in your catalogue, which according to my recollection, was less ornate than the sketch submitted. Another point is that, if it would make no material difference to the cost, I think it would be more convenient to have some, at any rate, of the switches in the room, Will the floor plugs be governed by any switch?'
