Abstract

[Letterhead: Richardson & Metzger] Talked to the man I told you about; he would like the position but wants to be sure he would "suit"; he is considered one of the best instrument makers and receives "as good pay as any here"; he attended Girard College, learned his trade with Young, the mathematical instrument maker; worked for Buff & Berger, Werth and Anders, Queen & Co., and Alvan Clark, telescope maker; you would have to pay $3.75; if it is all right, he will come see you when convenient. [Young, Buff & Berger, Werth and Anders, and Alvan Clark are unindexed] [See D8713ABT1 for follow up]
