I have been requested by the Public Works Department of the SMC to inquire about your sign board and lock system located at 870 Edward VII road, which may be affected by the installation of a chimney which I wish to build for the Hoog Mien Restaurant. This Chimney will come up right in the midle of the triangle stell supports. The chimney had been tried out yesterday and it seems that none of the neon light work had been affected.

If the arrangement is satisfactory, I shall let the Public Works Department know about same.

I write with regard to your letter of the 17th inst. Concerning the proposed installation of two chimneys on the roof beneath the above electric signboard at 870 Avenue Edward VII.

I am instructed to inform you that this Company has no objection provided that they are terminated not more than two feet above the existing roof level. I am however also instructed to say that if it is found that the smoke issuing from these chimneys cause damage to or interference with the sign we reserve the right to require the chimneys to be continued upward to a point not higher than two feet above this Company's existing steel structure or above any portion of the sign whichever maybe the higher.
