Messrs. E. F. Spears & Son,
  Ky!
Gentlemenz-
Since the writer had a talk last week with your Mr. C. W.
Spears relative to submitting you a bid on your new engine and boiler,
will say that I have taken this matter up with out President, Mr. Miller,
and he requests me to write you and ask f your Mr. C. W. Spears could
not spare a day and make a trip here and go with us to the factory of the ,
Ironton Engine Works, at Ironton, Ohio, which is only a few miles below
here, and see some dxf their new engines at work, also how they build them
at the plant. We think if you would do this that it would be to your in-
terests, as these people guarantee a better record of economy for their
new type of en ine than any Corliss or 4-valve en,g;I e on the mrket today`,
and t e regulagion from no load to full load is l-1%%%, which is closer
regulation than any Gorliss can show.
If you can possibly spare the time we would be glad to have you
make this trip any day this week and 0!_1];_B aj; og_1;@e;1_§e, and wge Ewhat I
day you could meet us at Ashland at the Ventura hotel and either Mr. Miller
or myself will meet you there and take you over to Ironton and show you
_ this engne. . `
We think it would be well for you to think this mtter over
seriously before you decide to purchase your outfit, and by all means
see some of these engines in operation. The writer saw some of them
Saturday and will say to you they are the prettiest running engine that I
have ever seen without a doubt, and are far better made and bgj:_t_er material
used in the same than most any engine on the unrket today.
If you cannot possibly make this trip we would gladly submit
you price on the engine and boiler you require but prefer you to see this
