Database Manager on January 19, 2008:

Updated through information from Scot Huntington: " On reflection, it is probably best to continue referring to Harwich as 1418, but the number 1417 appears in multiple places within this instrument, and 1418 only once. The number 1417 is also written on a few structural parts, but 1418 appears nowhere but on the Oboe. Otherwise, the rest of the internal graffiti refers to the organ as Harwich. (It is also not outside the realm of possibility the opus list is wrong regarding these too organs. )"
