441 St. Paul Street,
My dear Bull,-I have yours of the 16th. I find your statement and the papers you sent me so-utterly inadequate that I will have to try and work it out with you personally if I can in any way succeed in getting a definite or clear statement from you. I have not had a moment's time in which I could do it this week. As soon as I have it I will send for you, but there is no use of your coming up here when I can't see you. In the meantime, I have written to the Board of Trade asking for a list of those authorized to-weigh. I have looked up the law and found just who is empowered and authorized to appoint all weighers in Montreal. I find that McLeod is not so authorized. I have written to him asking on what authority he puts his advertisement in the paper and weighs butter and chee3e. I am-moving in the matter as fast as I -possibly can, and the reason of any delay that there is, is because you have not been able to give a clear and definite statement which would be of any use in a public discussion in a matter of this kind.
