from "Among the Deep Sea Fishers" | July 1911

Dr. Grenfell’s Letter

Boston, Mass.
May 19th, 1911

…It has been delightful to hear from Mr. Halsey, the Princetonian in charge of our mechanical work, of the splendid results accomplished by the aid of the boys who were sent to New York for one year’s mechanical training,--heating apparatus installed, water supplies laid on, machinery ably handled. To two of these young men he most earnestly desires that we should give another winter’s opportunity, and he has promised to remain during the coming year that he may do their work, if some friends are willing to defray the expense of sending them once more to the Pratt Institute next winter.
