Abstract

Send you samples sent by Brainer of Brazil. Stock is 9' long without flaw, common near Amazon. Bradley will try it. I proposed to Holzer that working day be 9 hours, not 10, to save money and bring all the men to their work on time. He thinks it would cause dissatisfaction. If we could do it, could commence at once. I send you time of arrival of all the men. I would've taken 9 hours but Holzer said he wanted men working 10. Will order for Haid apparatus for making small amounts of gas.
