TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, Assistant Secretary of the Royal Society to C E Rose
Date5 August 1915
Description'I sent in the official letters about decoration &c here but omitted to mention to you the time for carrying out the work. I should be very glad if you could begin with the work at the top of the house as soon after August 14 as possibe, and get that done first. Anything that has to be done downstairs could then probably be completed by September 6, which would suit us best.
May I take the opportunity of adding to the things to be done downstairs the staircase ceiling in the housekeeper's quarters? I will send a note to the head office about that.'
