for your generosity and thoughtful- j
ness in sending us a supply of Rub- j

vice to those engaged in excavating
the Shaft and handling the rough .
timbers and were a wonderful help
throughout the operations. Albert
Marshall, one of our mainstays in the
Shaft, cut his hand severely but after
having the wound dressed and with
the use of your mittens was able to
continue at work.
Although we failed to reach the
poor fellow in time, you have with the
rest of us who helped, the satisfaction 1
of having done all you could.
Thanking you for your co-opera
Yours very truly,
H. T. CARMICHAEL.
