TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Messrs P & F Schafer
Date22 April 1914
DescriptionIn carrying out repairs to his office desk, Harrison finds they have left the left hand moving block imperfect, so that the lower part of the back board appears to have been taken off altogether, and two blocks of wood inserted in the bottom in such a position as to prevent the bottom drawer going into its place at all. Would like some competent person to examine in and see how it can be easily put right.
