Abstract

Dear Sir:--We have your letter of Jan. 31st regarding the outside wiring at Mr. Burke's. As this was bought at the time of the Edison Wiring Co. and the agreement with Mr. Burke was that lead coered wire was to be used, we have done the best we could, and laid it in a trough. I think the trouble lies in the wire itself, and do not think we ought to be made to bear the entire expense of laying new cable.##What do you think of the advisability of asking Mr. Burke to bear with us to fix this right? Or could your electricians figure what will be required in Edison tubes to take the place of this underground wiring, and how much it will cost? We did not make any money at this part of the plant, as it was done for Mr. Burke at cost, charging him for material and time put in.##Awaiting your reply, we remain, Yours very truly Charles J Klein
