Abstract

"Your favor of July 3rd., addressed to me, was delivered at the house on a Sunday, and I forgot all about it. ### We have, since that time, made numerous experiments, with some very fair results. We found, howevr, that the machine we had was not strong enough to put the material on the wire with sufficient pressure, so as to give it a coat of from .03 to .004 of an inch. We broke the machine after every trial. In about a week or ten days we expect a very powerful machine suitable for this purpose as well as for covering wire with adulterated rubber, etc. We will report to you on the subject as soon as our next experiment has been made. What I meant by "corny", was that the material has a gritty structure." Yours very truly, John Kruesi [diagram on back of letter]
