Abstract

I reported to the meeting of the Ladies Committee of the Woman's Exchange yesterday, announcing your kind intention to arrange for exhibition, the date of the opening to be Easter Monday, April 6th, possession of building to be had two weeks previous. The Steam Heating Company have their building adjoining, and we can hire from 300 to 600 power from their boilers. There is also a vacant lot, and it is expected to have one furnished by our company. I am negotiating for the same with Mr. Prentice, President of the Steam Heating Co. Mr. Villard suggests that communications be entered into at once with Europe for such duplicates as can be procured of the Berlin and Paris expositions; also for cylinders of Bismark, Emperor William, Von Moltke, the Austrian Emperor, etc. etc. Can you make an appointment to inspect the premises with me as soon after your return as possible? Awaiting further particulars, I remain yorus
