TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to C [Charles] V [Vernon] Boys FRS
Date12 July 1911
DescriptionHarrison has received the enclosed letter from Davidson & Co, consequent of a visit they paid here [Burlington House]. The price for fixing the fan is not excessive and if Boys, agrees Harrison can order the work to go on.
With regard to the discharge mouthpiece there has been differing views on whether it should be made of wood by a carpenter or ordered from Davidson & Co. Harrison's opinion is that, considering the situation of the turret on the roof, exposed to temperature and moisture extreme, Davidson & Co's remarks about the advantage of galvanised metal over wood are sound.
