TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Dr W Haine
Date1 May 1908
DescriptionHarrison has seen that the central fitting which has arrived for the tea room is in black wrought iron. Harrison had thought it was made clear that the fitting was to be in the same hammered iron that is in the electrolier upstairs. Harrison hopes that the fitting can be altered in this way, Some members of the Committee were strongly recommending that the Royal Society use Siemens' Tantalum lamps, 16 candle power, in the new positions in the bays of the tea room and therefore Harrison asks Haine to procure and fix a sufficient number in the tea room.
