To: Isaac Baldwin McQuesten Hamilton [Ontario, Canada]
Hamilton and North western Railway.
Hamilton, July 6, 1887
I have much pleasure in presenting my testimony with reference to your new calibrated self acting Car Coupler, which has been in operation on the H & N. W. Ry. (E [D?]) for the last fourteen months, and has performed all that could be required. I have not the slightest hesitation whatever in saying that it is the most safest [sic]and also the most complete car coupler now in use. I have had others tested on our road but they completely failed to carry out what they were represented to do and had to be discarded. This new "self acting Car Coupler" of yours is certainly the best I have ever seen and I hope that the day is not far distant when every Railway in the Dominion of Canada and the United States will adopt the use of this most useful and life and limb saving article. Its construction is simple and complete, durable and easy to work, and stands second to none in the Dominion.
