Abstract

[From TAE] "We have never been satisfied with the working of the engine here, the exhaust shows a very short and a very long exhaust; in fact you can hardly [unclear[ one and the other seems to blow through with full pressure. Another thing; in going forward, if the clock is at this point [diagram] it will start all right; but if it is at the lower side in the same position it will not. The man you have sent here to start and adjust the engine had us fit up piping and indicate it and he looked with it for about a day taking cards—none of these cards did he ever show me, nor did he ever ask whether we were satisfied with its working or not—I an not satisfied with it and should like to have you send a man to make it right."
