TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to The Remington Company
Date25 May 1911
Description'I think the enclosed account must have been sent in under a mis-apprehension. An account for the "adjustment" of the typewriter was paid some three weeks ago, but the machine was not used for some days after, and then we discovered that certain defects had not been remedied. In reply to a complaint from me you sent a workman, but, as I telephoned to you on Monday, we discovered after he had left that the machine was still look into the matter. The typewriter now appears to be quite in order; but an expression of regret for the inconvenience cause by the neglect of your workmen would have been more acceptable that a second account for the adjustment of the machine.'
