Abstract

[Letterhead of Pack, Woods & Co., Manufacturers of Lumber and Salt] Some thirteen years ago, the undersigned worked six weeks for you, at the rooms of the Gold & Stock Telegraph Co. The agreement was, when I went to work, that I was to work the first two weeks for nothing, and was to be paid after that time with the promise of a position, as soon as you got your machines working, the instrument had a sort of "[------] Governor" on it. After working several weeks carrying machines up several pair[?] of stairs, I quit, as I could not afford to work for nothing and find myself. There was a young man there at the same time, but I've forgotten his name, he lived in NJ somewhere. If my services were worth anything to you at that time, I should be pleased to hear from you.
