Letter, written in brown ink, details custom chandelier for Grandison's friend's drawing room in Vera Cruz, Mexico. Grandison requests the fixture to have eight branches, each to hold crystal lamp, and to be bronzed to prevent tarnishing in the moist and hot climate of Mexico. Grandison also states that it is a "matter of competition with Birmingham and may bring you lots of orders as my friend is head of the first English house here."
Address of "14 Beverly Street, Boston, Mass." written on [p. 4] of letter.
R. Hollings & Co. manufactured gas fixtures, duplex lamps, and parlor and library lamps with imported pottery vases.
