Note written in Eric McGavin's handwriting

Note reads:
I must be allowed space in our next newsletter to take issue with some of this. if we only had a decent carpet in the Henderson hall I could find an excuse to have a monumental row and "part brass rags". One word though- I was looking at some flutes the other day which were dated 2600 years BC!! (Editor).
