Notes: Typewritten. An illuminated album from the theatres for Edward VII had been prepared in 1902, similar to the Jubilee Address sent to Queen Victoria. A bill for 375 had been sent on 1st January 1903. On 3rd October 1903 150 was paid, with the 8 guineas in Letter 8974, and 140 on 24th December 1903. The final payment was made on 30th September 1905. There was also a bill for silk programmes in 1903 and 1904. The payment arrangements seem to have been mishandled and a further appeal to subscribers was made in 1903.
