TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Mr W Haine
Date31 January 1912
Description'It has occurred to me that the best way of obtaining a final decision soon upon the ceiling fitting for the hall would be to put one up in position. The if it is accepted the work will be done, and if not the labour of changing it cannot be very great. How would it be to put up the one you propose sending and the one I have here already so as to judge between them? I am inclined to think on the whole that a ceiling light would do quite well for the outer hall.'
