TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to H F Coward, HM Office of Works
Date20 December 1911
Description'In the course of overhauling the Society's painted portraits we have reminded that several of them are pictures of considerable monetary value; and I have been requested to call attention to the comparative ease with which entrance might be made into the building by means of many of the ground floor windows, none of which have sash fastenings. Could you see your way to fitting sash fastening on all of the ground floor windows if I send in a requisition?'
