TitleCopy letter from an unknown correspondent, to Messrs Drake & Gorham
Date13 November 1893
Description'I have now seen the Treasurer, and he says you may take out the little plaster rose in the cornice of the Council Room in order to find the break in the leads, but the cornice must not be disfigured and the plaster must be made good in all respects. He is quite of the opinion that you ought to have had a plan of the leads, since no other person but yourselves has run any leads in this house'.
