TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to The Manager, The Pulvo Vacuum Cleaners
Date20 July 1911
Description'With reference to your recent call here I have been to the London Library to inspect the electric Pulvo Cleaner which they have in use there. It struck me that the actual apparatus they have is no more powerful than the instrument we already have in use here; but I shall be glad to know whether that it the 1/4 h.p apparatus or the high power electric Pulvo advertised in your prospectus. In the former case I should be glad to see the high power electric Pulvo which you price at £38.10, if you can arrange to send one down here for inspection, without committing myself in any way to its purchase. Any day in the early part of next week will be suitable time for me to inspect it.'
