Abstract

"I have written Kruesl: to-day to send the young man Churchill, who I told you I thought would suit for Frazar, down to the laboratory for you to see him. If you think he will shower the purpose, you had better set him to work.### When you see him tell him that his salary will be $1200.00 a year: that whilst be remains at the headquarters of the concern that is all he will be allowed, but when he is traveling he will be allowed his traveling and hotel expenses.### I think, for the boy’s protections, that you should make arrangements with Frazar, that not only his expenses out to Japan should be paid, but that in event of Frazar & Co. not requiring his services longer, that his expenses back should be paid; either to New York or London, as Churchill might elect.### Frazar & Co. should also undertake to pay his return expenses, if he leaves them of his own accord, providing that he stays in their service for a period of two years."
