Abstract

Armature of Senate dynamo sparks badly and works rough; the second one you sent is no better than the first; have trouble keeping lights uniform.###Neither Day nor Buehler can find the trouble; send a competent person before it injures any more lamps or the dynamo.###Enginemen want to put foundation in today at Panorama building; foreman says he had been given all next week to do it, but wouldn't say who told him this.###Artist in charge of the painting says that if the lights are completed this week they can work at night and have it opened by 1 March.###Tell whoever made the contract for the engine that it must be done by Saturday night.###Still waiting for 300 ft. of No. 12 wire to make the connection with the big chandelier in the Marble Room.
