Abstract

"In spite of all my urging by Telegraph and mail. The Foundry did not suply me with the necessary copper castings for Service Joints. So that if we lay a 1000 feet to night we are completely stopped. I cant make them to cast more. Have ordered them yesterday to [---] the patterns. Have Telegd also. I fear though that we will have trouble right along unless we can make them a lower grade of composition say 85% instead of 96% so that any Foundry can make them. "Please suggest or advice." either select this or d8130zad 811214; may give good view of work on underground lines and relns w/ suppliers and contractors. dh 13sep02
