Letter from Shaw to MacNaughton, August, 1913

This telegram does not say much of interest, but as a whole, a hand-written letter from 1913, in condition this good was too interesting to pass up.  It is a thank you note to MacNaughton for his work, and acknowledgement that they are indeed heading in the right direction in regard to bringing the strike to an end.

Dear Mac

Was delighted this afternoon at Dolui's office to find that Dolph had telephoned your telegram of meeting of loyal miners - the first step in the right direction - they are proper strike breakers and they'll count in the end and for a long time!

I learned some encouraging news as to the probable [financial]? possibilities.  In the hours take, a Utah striker, the [members]? of the [W. F. of L.]? at [Balt.]? were called on for subscription benefits and voted 4 to 1 against in both cases.  I'm inclined to think no extra funds will be available from that locality in our case!  I'm sorry to say [Gay]? left this morning or rather last night so I haven't seen him and of course [shan't sight]? on the subject.

Copper looks well 15 1/2 for C & H, 15 3/8 T.O. so our stocks will bring in good prices.

Very dull here.  Sorry you aren't!
