Abstract

"I have taken temporary charge of this station (Sunbury) for its purpose of putting it into shape. Shaw [xxx] have bought it the Heims who owned controlling stock. I think this station can be made to pay provided they can get a good man at $60 to $75 per month to run into do all wiring + operate meters. Gas is weak, I believe control of their stock could be gotten for $5,000 and the works either closed up or used to manfu. Heating gas; thereby throwing all the lighting into our hands. We have about #3,000 stock unsold which is placed at par would pay all our debts and fix up station in good shape. Consider this letter confidential and call on me for [xxx] information you may desire and I shall cheerfully furnish it.
