"To form a proper estimate of the great advantage and elegant appearance of our improved metallic window, shutters, doors & fastenings for which we have obtained his Majesty's Royal Letters Patent they must be seen in operation as any description which could be incorporated within the limits of a circular would fall indefinitely short in conveying to your mind an adequate idea of he inportance utility and taste, which upon inspection would be found to be associated in these improvements ... 24 High St. St. Giles'. We remain your mos obedt. servts, [Harris & Kitchen]"
