Letter to The Secretary H. M. Office of Works

Date 11 Oct 1880

Requesting that the two Public Rooms, 6 and 11, being refloored with oak may at

the same time be re-papered with a special paper-hanging more expensive than

that ordinarily used, but will be more suitable as a background for the

pictures, and could the sanction of the Board be obtained for the paper hanging,

a sample of which has been supplied to H. M. Office of Works.
