Abstract

[TAE ALS nice hand] "Friend Villard: Was talking with local street car supt today who has just returned from Street Car Convention at Minneapolis. He says general opinion is that Thompson Houston is far superior to Sprague also that Richmond Road gives Sprague Co. very bad reputation and 3rdly they are all down on overhead wire system. 4rthly Electric Systems increased traffic 33 per cent on majority roads & if it made no saving this 33pct would warrant change." Yours, [signed] TAE
