Messrs Pilling & Crane.
Girard Building,
Philadelphia, Pa.
Dear Sirs:
Confirming telephone message of yesterday, we beg to state that we have decided to shut down the Bricker plant, as there seems to be nothing in the present ore situation to warrant the continuance of operations. We have on hand about 650 tons of briquettes that will go below .040 and about 1500 tons that will run time to time. We have quite a stock of concentrates on hand in stock house and would not care to make any arrangements to start the Bricker plant in operation again until we are ready to resume operations in the entire plant.
We greatly regret that the market was in such a condition that you were unable to place our product and after a careful analysis of the troubles we have had during the run from May first up to the present time, we feel perfectly safe in stating that when we start up the next time, you may look for continuous operations, probably both day and night, as the things which have developed and caused loss in output and time, have all been small and be easily remedied, which we will do while we shut down.
Yours very truly,
W.S. Mallory V.P.
