Abstract

I have given Millard B. Kittt a letter to you asking you if possible to give him a place in the Phonograph works which you will no doubt see in good time. I have always taken a deep interest in the Brusch and Patterson families. Mrs. Kitt is a sister of Mrs. Brusch and this boy is her son. Mina can tell you all about the family so I need not say more about that. The only fear I have of this boy is he has a little bit of high temper as I learn. Otherwise you will find him a good boy, industrious and ready to work. As I stated in his letter, he is a nephew of Charlie Brusch whom you know; of course he has not the same kind of a temperament as Charlie but his brother is now in New York and doing quite well. # You must not hire these men unless you can use them to advantage. They come to me and of course I do what I can for them but do not for a moment think you are under any obligations to take them unless you can use them just as well as anybody. I have carefully avoided annoying you with any requests of mine. I know how you are constantly importuned on every side and heartily sympathize with you and know how difficult it is to accommodate everybody.So do not have the least hesitation in using your own discretion and judgment in taking in this boy or not. (Dictated.) TAE marg: Await his coming"
