Date14 July 1909
Description'Dear Sirs,
In reply to your letter of yesterday, Friday next will be a suitable day in some respects for your operator to attend here to photograph the pictures for Sir Edward Thorpe, if he can attend in the morning; but as our staff of men are very busily engaged this week on special work, it would be a great convenience if you could send someone accustomed to handling pictures who would assist in taking the portraits down from the walls and rehanging them.'
