TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to A Bruce Joy
Date24 May 1911
Description'Many thanks for your note. I hope the casting of the Status has turned out well. When you are able to report on the I shall be most happy to see you as to the placing of the statue; but I am nearly always out at six o'clock in the evening, as that is my only chance of getting air and exercise after the labours of the day. I am generally in to dinner, so that I could see you in the later evening if that suited you better than office hours, but it would be really better to come, if you can manage it, when the people of the place are about, to discuss arrangements.
I shall be glad to know, as a preliminary, what approximately the weight of the statue will be.
Of course a card of invitation will be sent for you and Mrs Bruce Joy.'
