April 21, 1892.
John H. Wood, Esq.,

18 & 20 Liberty Street,
New York City.
Dear Sir:-
I beg to advise you that in accordance with the recommendations of the Middle States Inspection Bureau, and also of the Harnkness Fire Extinguisher Co., the following work has been done in connection with the Laboratory Sprinkler equipment.
In the Chemical Room the old heads have been taken off, new ones have been put in Blacksmith’s Shop. Differential valve has been repaired. The blind attic over Dynamo Room has been equipped with sprinklers, and there are now 18 heads in that apartment. Two street connections have been made with sprinkler equipment, one with the main building, and the other with the small buildings, non-freezing system with combination valve. Main valve was broken; is now repaired.
In regard to substituting new heads for certain heads that are painted, the man from the Harkness Fire Extinguisher Co. who superintended this work, examined these painted heads, found they were not painted on the belt, and pronounced then to be all right. The painted heads were therefore allowed to remain; the men said their removal was entirely unnecessary, as they were O.L.
Our Mr. Ott went over the system with the representative of the Harkness Company, and found everything in good order.
Yours very truly,
A.O. Tate
Private Sec’y.
