Abstract

"In answer to your favor of Jan. 17th. would say that Pierson & Co. from whom we buy all our sheet and plate iron and sheet and plate steel, have informed us that they shipped everything that they could gather up in stock, at their mills and in New York., and that they have informed you to that effect. The remainder of the order will be made as quickly as possible. The copper and brass, in all shapes and forms have been ordered a long while ago by our Mr. Kreusi from the Ansonia Brass & Copper Co. He went personally to see them and asked them to do all possible to hurry it through. We will, however, write them again to ship whatever is finished and hurry up with the balances of the order. ### We send you from here to-day a large portion of the composite castings that you have ordered from us, and the balance will be shipped to you in the course of a few days, and all the iron castings as well. We have a large number of Lathe and planer tools finished and will ship them today, and the balance before the end of this week. ### In covered wire we have shipped you 21 1/2 lbs. of #10 Cotton, 66 1/2 lbs. of #12, 19 lbs of #11. We are shipping to-day 54 lbs. more of #10, and 60 lbs. of #12. Of grade #1 wire we shipped 14 1/2 lbs. of #23, 40 1/2 lbs. of #18, 22 lbs. of #1/ 101 1/2 lbs. of #16, 102 lbs. of #1/ B.M.G., 160 lbs. of #12 E&S, 8 1/2 lbs. #10 BAS, 90 lbs. #12 B.W.G., 106 lbs. #10 B.W.G. We shipped also to-day 25 lbs. of #25 B.W.G. and 20 lbs. #21 B.W.G. ### The Silk covered German Silver wire is now going through our machine and will be sent to you as fast as finished. We are shipping 7 lbs. of #31 B.W.G., 10 lbs. of #28, 10 lbs. of #26, 20 1/2 lbs. of #21, 25 3/4 lbs. of #19 and 27 1/2 lbs. of #18. of double silk covered copper wire. ### The coton covered iron wire we are unable to make at once because we are still waiting for the iron wire which we have ordered some time ago. We will give all your orders prompt attention and expect to have everything shipped within a week." Very truly yours, Saml Insull
