Request to be furnished with copy of remaining objections in order that they may receive the consideration of the Directors

Dear Sir

As the Committee appointed by the vestry at their meeting with the Directors of the Water Company yesterday stated that the list of objections then delivered in writing were all that they had to raise we were very much surprised to hear that when Mr Swarbreck asked you last night to sign the copy on behalf of the Committee, you stated that if these objections were not removed the Committee had others.

We cannot advise the Directors of the Water Company to entertain a deal with objections by piecemeal and we must therefore ask you to deliver a copy of the remaining objections in order that they may receive the consideration of the Directors at a meeting they intend holding most probably on Saturday.

Yours truly
Swarbreck & Rhodes
