Date23 February 1894
Description'The screen on the meeting room wall for use with the lantern must be repainted. If this is done on Monday, will it be dry enough for use on Thursday? If so, send a man on Monday, and let him ask me for instructions before beginning work. It is to be a dead white as before, but square and larger. If it would not be dry by Thursday, let him put it off till the Friday, and then take care that it is ready for use by the following Thursday. HR'.
