from "Among the Deep Sea Fishers" | April 1912

On Little Things
January, 1912.

Yours gratefully,
Wilfred T. Grenfell

Note by the Editor—After this article had been sent by Dr. Grenfell to the magazine, the Rev. Mr. Halsey brought to Dr. Grenfell’s attention a “little thing” which is so badly wanted as to deserve a special paragraph to itself. Mr. Halsey writes (and Dr. Grenfell add, “I hope very much we may get this”): “Here is something we need most of all to make a ‘go’ of the shop—one chain mortiser, number 3 standard, with compound table and a set of chain saws from a quarter of an inch to once inch ¼, 3/8, 7/16, 1/2, 5/8, ¾, and 1 inch.
