TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Miss Bottomley
Date29 September 1910
Description'Dear Madam,
I now have the pleasure to enclose a cheque in payment of your account for recent repairs and decorations in this building. I sent it without further question in response to your request, but am to refer to some minor points in the account.
(1) In fixing the new ebony set to the Library door the washer has been broken. I take it for granted this will be renewed.
(2) The staining of the floor on the Second Floor was unsuccessfully done in the first instant so that it had to be renewed. The second coat has not yes been tested, but if it should fail like the first, it is understood that it will be made good.'
