Abstract

"Referring to the applicationof Mr. William McNeill for the superintendency of the Cincinnati Station, I would state, that if Mr. McNeill is a competent man, I have no doubt but that Mr. Osborn, President of the Cinncinnati Company, would have engaged him. ## His having been in the employ of the Cincinnati Company, would seem to me, [in?]sufficient guarantee that his abilities are not such as would commend themselves for the position of Superintendent. ## I know that the Cincinnati Company earnestly desire to secure a competent man. I do not know anything of McNeill's abilities, but would suggest that he make a personal application to Mr. Osborn, the President of the Company. ## Should be glad to have you call if you happen to come in 16 Broad Street at any time. ## We are exceedingly busy on the detailed work connected with the central stations of New York, Boston, Chicago, Philadelphia and Columbus."
