TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to H J Read
Date4 November 1912
DescriptionHarrison has had another letter from [Sir David] Bruce this morning referring to the drawings of his which he cabled about in the summer. After a renewed hunt through the building, a parcel of drawings has been found inside another parcel, and Harrison concludes they are what he wants. As Bruce is very anxious about them, Harrison wonders if Read will send a cable to him in code saying that the drawings have been found and are being despatched. Harrison will write to explain. Apologises to trouble with a detail, but these drawings seem necessary for Bruce's work.
