Abstract

TAE wrote me last October that he would give me employment in about a month in this state in connection with his mineral lab. Detail instructions were to be sent later. # I wrote again this spring about it and Tate answered that TAE must be and I can't blame him in the least if he forgets me entirely, but if he is to employ a man in this Rocky Mountain territory he can get no one who will try harder to earn his salary or work with greater pleasure than myself. # I can sell electric light machinery at the rate of one plant a month but I will lose money on every plant, traveling expenses, freight, living and labor are so high and our terms with the United Co so poor. # Both my partners have quit but I will hold down as long as I can make it yield enough to pay office rent. # You used to have a friendly feeling toward me and it is presuming on this that I ask you to kindly speak to TAE in my behalf when it is convenient. # You should come to this state for a month in the summer. Plenty of shooting, fishing, mountain air, and scenery.
