[D8830ABR], Letter from Frank Seymour Hastings to Arthur Edwin Kennelly, August 6th, 1888

Abstract

"I have just received a letter from Mr. Harold P. Brown in which he asks me to attend to the packing and reshipping of materials used in the resent tests at Columbia College. As I am entirely unfamiliar with the materials used there, and do not know when they came, I am at a loss to know how to proceed to have them returned. It is important that some one should go there tomorrow, and I would therefore suggest that if you can conveniently do so it would be a great favor to us if you would go to Mr. Chinnock at 65 Fifth Avenue, show him this letter, and asks him to send someone with you to the college in order that you may show him just what materials are to be returned and where they are to be sent. Mr. Chinnock will also send the necessary men to put everything back into place for the college authorities, as I understand that considerable heavy machinery had to be moved in order to make way for these experiments. I am exceedingly sorry to trouble you but I do not see how I can avoid it, and I shall be greatly obliged if you will kindly let me know tomorrow morning where you can attend to this or not. ### There is a small magento which belongs in this office and which I shall be greatly obliged if you will kindly have returned here." Yours very truly, F.S. Hastings
