Right Hon. W.L.Kackenzie King
My dear Mr. King:-
I have your letter of July 30th. Mr. William Knell was in to see me yesterday, and I took the liberty of reading your letter to him.
Mr. Knell assured me that he had gotten too much pleasure out of the work done on the lamps, and the fact that he was entrusted with a work which proved successful in bringing gladness to you, for him to even think of accepting more than the splendid evidence of appreciation which you have shown for what he has done. He would crave the privilege of sharing with you in some slight measure the joy which these lamps have brought to your heart. He would not have you feel under any obligation to him, for his joy in the matter is equal to your own.
In this connection I believe that Mr. Knell expresses the thought in the minds of all who had any part in rendering the undertaking a success.
With kindest regards,
Your sincere friend,
