Abstract

"I learned this morning from Mr. Chinnock that you had a conference with Mr. Shaw yesterday, neither Mr. Bergman nor myself being present. As we were appointed [-] [----]iting [-----]ted to consider the marker or mail central station work, it seems to me that no action should be taken independent of the committee, for whatever business will, undoubtedly, require to be done with the sanction of the committee. I have thought considerably personally about this matter and I know Mr. Bergman has; and what took place on Thursday at the general meeting with reference to Mr. Shaw did not strike me as meaning anything definite, but simply that our board wanted to learn upon what terms Mr. Shaw [-------] could be [-------] [--] [--], and I did not understand that it was intended to [----] Mr. Shaw any definite offer until we had learned [--] [----] as to what his expectations [----]. I do not know how far your negotiations have gone, and I think that nothing further should be done, except when the committee appointed for the purpose is present."
