TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to The Secretary, HM Office of Works
Date28 April 1909
DescriptionHarrison had delayed in replying to the Secretary's letter as he had hoped by this time that the authorities of the Royal Academy of Arts would have fulfilled their offer to issue a key to the gate in the north-west corner of the quadrangle [at Burlington House]. This has not happened despite two applications and several letters. Harrison thanks the Secretary for the information with regard to the control of the roadway leading into Burlington Gardens and for furnishing him with a key of the gate at the north end of that roadway.
