TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to William Duddell, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date19 October 1908
DescriptionApologizes for bothering Duddell, but as a member of the small Electric Lighting Committee that advised on lighting the tea room, Harrison would like his advice on the enclosed note [no enclosures] and say whether the specification is a satisfactory one for some 50 feet of cable to go outside the building on a circuit which carries half the lights in the Library. The old cable had rotted away through having been originally put outside without proper protection, and it is now being renewed in an iron barrel.
