Abstract

"We have your telegram of this date. We are just beginning to get the brass castings from the foundry for the Sprague motors, and we found this morning that they are all wrong; the cause of it we cannot understand, unless the Sprague Co. have altered the patterns since we last had them. ## We recognize the importance of getting motors out as quickly as possible; we have even taken the trouble to send the foreman of our machine shop, Mr. MacDougall, to New York, this afternoon, to see into the matter. ## He is going to Bergmann's first thing to-morrow morning to look over the patterns. ## This is the only thing that keeps us from getting the motors out promptly. This is a trouble that will not occur again, as in a few days our own brass foundry will be running here."
