Lynchburg Letter: W. H. Loyd to J. William Gayner

November 19, 1926

The letter deals with personal matters, as well as mentioning attempts to sell the plant and noting the few insulators that are still on hand. A scan of W. H. Loyd's copy of the original letter is below.


November 19, 1926.

Mr. J.William Gayner
29- 7th. Street
Salem, N.J.

Dear Mr. Gayner:

Replying to your letter of the 18th., I wish to thank you for the kind message and we all in turn wish you and your family a very happy thanksgiving. It has been a great disappointment for the last two years in not being able to share our thanks with you here , while enjoying a growing business, but as it has turned out otherwise and we can still be thankful for something, then we should not kick.

Yes I mailed your letter to Mr. Massie and thought that he had answered. I discussed the contents with him and he understands about your machines, moulds, and other things. I have been hoping that you would be back here using them yourself before now. It looks as if they are not going to do anything with this plant, as nothing definite has been done toward selling it.

Mr. Reade and I have been patching the roof to-day and Clinebell has left at last. All of the insulators have been sold except some #2 #43 #530 . There are still calls for our insulators and jars from many places. It is a shame that we could not have continued.

Write me whenever you feel like it[.] I am always glad to hear from you.

Sincerely yours,

[W. H. Loyd]
