Date26 May 1914
DescriptionUnfortunately it will not be possible to fulfil his requirements for the Soiree since there are very definite restrictions are imposed through the presence of ladies. No corridor in any part of the building could be used, nor could any floor space be available for the running of instruments. The most he could do would be to use the top of a steady smooth table. All the rooms on the ground floor are used either for refreshments or cloak rooms.
