Abstract

"I return you herewith Vail's memo. referred to you by Johnson. Mr. Kruesi states that he has had our compund under water for upwards of three months, and at the end of that period it tested just as good as prior to its being immersed. ## Mr. W. B. Vail is entirely in error in his statement as to the compound becoming rotten and porous; such is not at all the case. The compound is made to-day precisely as it was at the time of the filling of tubes for the First District, and Mr. Johnson will doubtless recollect that a great number of tubes were taken up from the district known as the 'swamp' and were found to be in perfect order after a year or eighteen months, notwithstanding that this district is soaked with water at every high tide."
