Date16 December 1908
Description'Dear Sir,
With reference to my letter of December 2 on the subject of the working of the new boiler, and asking for an appointment with your Engineer to discuss the matter on the spot, I understand that a visit was paid here by one of your representatives to see me on the subject. I have however had no further communication and shall be much obliged if the matter can be pushed forward, as the present behaviour of the boiler and apparatus if far from satisfactory.'
