Transcript waddell & hedrick to l.Austin M.iller..,JB.qu.# -. Date 4-5-00 specifications, but as the cost has run higher than we expected, and as we desire to build a bridge of this new type without delay, we have concluded to waive the royalty in this case and to ask you merely our usual Pour (4) per cent fee for plans and specifications and for the checking of shop drawings, or say $l,400.oo in case of the swing bridge, and Jil,500.oo in case of the bascule. We would desire, however, to have thd approving of your choice of inspectors, and to have them report to us so that we can make sure that everything is manufactured in a satisfactory manner. We would like also to furnish you with one or our experienced field inspectors to attend to the superintendence of erection, reporting to you and us jointly, his salary to be paid by you. These points we merely suggest; but, of course, could not insist upon them. We are having prepared for you an outline sketch of the b^.= mis structure which we propose. If you build it, you will find that its ease and simplicity of operation are simply phenomenal. Should you desire any further information oonoeraing the type of bascule that we suggest, we shall be pleased to furnish it without delay. Very respectfully yours, Consulting Engineers.
