[D8814ADN], Recommendation Letter from Robert Henry Thurston to Edward Caldwell, June 26th, 1888

Item

Abstract

The bearer, Caldwell, is a graduate of the advanced course in applied electricity -- electrical engineering -- of Sibley College, Cornell University, and is a man of mature judgement, great capacity for good work, and thoroughly reliable. I shall hope for him a very unusual success in his chosen line of work. He has done his work here with great diligence, with exceptional care and with a skill that could hardly have been expected or hoped of one who had not had a large practical experience before coming here. # He will, I think, be found a most useful man in any direction that he may consent to undertake to work or responsibilities. I have come to take much personal interest in him, and would bespeak for him such courtsies and attention as may properly offered so promising a novice in the profession.
