TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to The General Manager, Post Office London Telephone Service, General Post Office, Carter Lane, E.C.
Date17 December 1909
Description'I have received the enclosed communication from you, but before putting it forward for the consideration of the Treasurer, I think the attention of your office should be called to the absurd misdirection of the document, which has been repeated on the yearly account sent with it, in which this Society is addressed as the "Burial Society". On receipt of another copy of the communication I will ask the Treasurer's consent to paying our telephone rent by bankers' order.
I am,
faithfuly yours,
Robt Harrison'.
