Abstract

Your man has been here 9 days practically idle because he does not have the materials he sent for; I enclose Hutchinson's letter; the trouble is verbal instructions; you told the man to report to me but sent him to the Senate officers, whom he told nothing would be done until they guaranteed payment to the Edilson Co., in repudiation of Royce & Marean and me; architect told me there was pressure to have lights in some other places and did not want me to install the big chandelier in the president's room; I told him that until they paid for the plant I wanted to use the lights where they would be seen to increase the demand. [Marg.: Hutch--How does the matter stand now? EHJ]
