TitleCopy letter from an unknown correspondent, to Mr Lindfield, Portland Road, Notting Hill
Date4 July 1891
Description'Dear Mr Lindfield - Your estimate is nearly double what we have usually paid for the carpets, so I am sorry to say that there is no chance of my inducing the Treasurer to change this year. I have no doubt your work would be more careful, but, for the present, we must ask you to do only the library carpet which is included in your decorating contract, & the other carpets will be taken up next week by the old firm'.
