W1751 TO DR. CALVIN BROOK MCQUESTEN from William Dunn
Apr 16 1885 Thursday Morning
To: Dr. Calvin Brooks McQuesten, [New York City]
From: [New York City, New York]
Not being at the Cooper Institute last evening, I have just learned that your messenger did not get the Trunk containing the small cars. The Porter misunderstood me supposing the trunk was to be sent by Express and not knowing the contents. If you will send me word when you wish the Trunk to be sent, It will be forwarded accordingly, and I have given instructions for it to be delivered to anyone calling for it.1
1 Dunn sends yet another apologetic letter after Dr. C.B. Mcquesten inquires about the trunk again and Dunn promises to deliver (W1753). For other letters from Mr. Dunn to Dr. C.B. McQuesten concerning the train car couplers, see W1728, W1749.
