Letter to H.G. Reid
|Date||20 Oct 1879|
States that 100 of each of the two kinds of umbrella counters were delivered to the Gallery that morning. Their size and shape are satisfactory but the edges of the counters are too sharp. The metal that the counters are made from is also too dark. It is asked whether the next batch of counters could be made from Britannia metal, which is whiter. Also asks if the string holes of the square counters could be drilled a little larger.
