Abstract

[letterhead of Celluloid Novelty Co.] I must apologize for bothering you, but as I have written once or twice lately, I am afraid that through rush of business my letters may not have reached you. Some time since a young man named Van Buren applied to you for a position in your lab, with letter from myself and others, and from what was said then, and afterwards, we inferred that you would be able to do something for him. Is it not possible to do this now? I feel quite confidant that you will do my fathers son a favor if possible. The young man has a decided learning towards electricity and is quite well posted. Will you not kindly give this consideration and oblige. TAE marg: "We have him on our list but we were all full before he applied just as soon as I find places for some of men I now have will do something for him"
