TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to C Rose, H M Office of Works
Date26 September 1914
DescriptionHarrison has written to the head office asking them to sanction official work being done by Rose's men, but he is inclined to think it would be better to postpone the redecorations of the main staircase until the Christmas holidays. If would be inconvenient for the main staircase to be blocked with scaffolding and men during the session. The north hall passage might be got on with now.
