TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to the General Manager, Post Office Telephone Service, Carter Lane, EC
Date5 January 1912
Description'With reference to your note of the 3rd instant concerning the subscription of this Society for the Telephone Service, the delay in sending the usual subscription is due to a discussion of the question whether we should change on to the unlimited service instead of our present subscription for the message rate. If you will on this account allow our subscription to stand over for a few days it shall be sent to you, in the one category or the other, within a week from now.
Would you tell me what the total subscription for unlimited service with the three extension lines inside the building would be?'
