The Guildhall School of Music Victoria Embankment, E.C. London, 15th Aug. 1900 The Manager of the Bell Organ & Piano Co. Limited, 49 Holborn Viaduct, London, EC Dear Sir, I have now tested for some months, in the Guildhall School of Music, the "Bell" Upright Grand Pianoforte, made by your Firm in Guelph, Canada, and am very pleased with it. I find the instrument stands in tune in a most admirable manner. It has been tried by a considerable number of Professors, and has been generally admired not only for its tone, touch and quality, but also for the excellence of its manufacture. Yours very truly, William H. Cummings, Mus. Doc. Principal. The Bell Organ and Piano Co.
