TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to F H Coward
Date28 March 1912
DescriptionCoward may have heard that there are to be great doing at the Royal Society in July in connection with the 250th anniversary of the Society. Harrison enquires whether Coward can help him in respect of the three large permanent cases which stand in the middle of the library, which must be removed for the occasion, and taken apart entirely and this work must be done by skilled cabinetmakers.
Harrison asks whether the Office of Works have any such men in its employment or whether Coward can make any recommendation.
