TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Messrs Watts & Co, 30 Baker Street, W
Date26 July 1911
Description'With reference to my visit to you on Monday we have chosen out of the paper you sent down the Charles II pattern of oak colour on the black ground, and I shall be obliged by your supplying the quantity required to W Bottomley, Builder, Decorator, &c, 19 York Buildings, Adelphi, WC, who are carrying out the decoration here. I have impressed upon them the necessity of careful hanging and the use of good paste, and have every reason to trust their attention to these particulars.
Perhaps you could let your messenger call for your other patterns at your convenience.'
