Abstract

"We are sending you to-day a widing machine and also some wire and cotton, would on bobbins. The only way to put a new bobbin on the machine is to cut the wire. The way we do it is to rewind cotton on the bobbin already on the machine, but this is hardly advisable in your experimental work as some of your men may get mixed up in doing the winding. I will write you to-morrow giving full particulars as to this. I am, however, still of the opinion that we should let us send some one from here to fix up the machine." Marginalia: "This Driving pulley which we send separately should run 154 & the cotton bobbin should revolve towards you"
