TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Messrs J Edington & Co Ltd, 9 Long Lane, West Smithfield, EC
Date23 July 1909
Description'Dear Sirs,
In reply to your letter of yesterday I waited for some time without getting a reply to my enquiry as to the cost of repairing the flagstaff, and as I received no answer I placed the order elsewhere.
Your account of £1. 10 for erecting an awning here on June 24 will be put forward for payment in due course, but I should like to point out that the awning was very badly put up; among other things, it was not made fast at the bottom, so that the back blew in, and was a great source of annoyance.'
