Date3 November 1911
DescriptionHarrison sends herewith five more pictures which he asks to be taken in hand as soon as possible; but the President asks that before embarking upon them that Buttery lets Harrison have as close an estimate a he can of the cost of renovation them in accordance with Sir Walter Armstrong's recommendations.
