Champlin, in part: "there are many who could fill the position of head of such an association, much more efficiently than myself. I sail on the 24th instant, and shall be in New York a day or two probable before I go, and will try if possible to see you…Hoping to see you before I sail." In very good to fine condition, with a repaired tear to the upper left, and splitting to the horizontal fold beneath the signature. Accompanied by an 1882 letter by H. G. Keller on Morse Underground Conduit Company letterhead, and a printed booklet with information on underground electric wires.
