Abstract

Received yours of the 19th; till noon today the engine man hadn't done 3 hours work on the engine since Friday; this morning he put in a connection with the boiler and left; he told the engineer who runs the boiler he could start the engine tomorrow; all the lamps will be up by 1 p.m. Monday; the dynamo and connections are all ready; work on the Panorama and ground work are way behind; they have to work every night this week to get it done; LePrince, the artist in charge, was indignant when I told him what Andrews had told you; telegraphed him asking him to order the workers to have the lights ready for Monday night and told him the engine men didn't work on Sat.; aside from pleasing the artist, which the engine men don't care about, we need the system up early to work out any bugs; Goerck St. man had not turned up by noon today to check bug in Senate dynamo, though he has been testing it two days.
