1928 Repairs to J.C. Ellsworth's Organ

Either J.C. Ellsworth, the banker of the Fowlerville State Bank, was a very busy man or his interest waned in having the organ he so desparately wanted a decade earlier.  One of my readers, who now owns parts of the organ, sent me a stack of correspondence and other information.  I found this letter particularly interesting -- or gruesome -- in the repairman's description of repairing the brass strip found in the first paragraph.
Tomorrow's post will have a newspaper article published in the Detroit Free Press.
