Finleyson writes to Finley concerning his son-in-law, Archibald Cunnigham, who is an excellent moulder by trade. Cunningham has been injured and is under doctor's orders not to work for six months. Finleyson wonders if there might be a position at the prison for this man. He would like Finley to plead Cunningham's case to the warden (Col. Dewey). Cunningham is competent enough to oversee the moulding department. Abstract Number - 1111
