TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Miss Bottomley
Date26 July 1911
Description'I have now spoken to the Treasurer and he has agreed to the payment of cheques of £75 at the end of August and of September on account of the decorating work which will be going on here.
I gave your foreman painter to-day a piece of the paper which has been selected for the panels on the end walls of the Library, and shall be much obliged by your ordering the necessary quantity from Messrs Watts & Co, 30 Baker Street, (the makers).
The scheme of decoration of the Library being now decided I shall be much obliged by your letting me have an amended estimate of the cost, which I conclude will be less than the first estimate on account of the simpler scheme of decoration. The existing scheme of decoration for the ante-room and meeting room downstairs is approved for repetition.'
