Dear Mr. McQuesten:
Re: Rainbow Bridge Plaza

I enclose herewith a copy of a letter received from Canadian John-Manville Company quoting a price of $1.500.00 for lining the smoke stack. I delayed forwarding this as I have been trying to get a letter from them confirming what their engineer has told me verbally, namely, that when the stack temperature is approximately 600 degrees the surface temperature on the room side would not be more than 110 degrees to 120 degrees. The actual air temperature within 1" of the wall surface would, of course, be much less. Their quotation mentions a brick smoke stack, this is an error and should read concrete. Will you please let me know your wishes in this matter?

Yours very truly,
W.L. Somerville
