The Coal Business on the Pennsylvania Railroad: A Communication Addressed to the President, Directors, and Stockholders of the Pennsylvania Railroad, on the Cost of Transportation (Classic Reprint) by Unknown Author (Paperback / softback, 2015)
Excerpt from The Coal Business on the Pennsylvania Railroad: A Communication Addressed to the President, Directors, and Stockholders of the Pennsylvania Railroad, on the Cost of Transportation Having been instrumental in the organization of coal and lumber companies w in operation, or about to commence operation on or near the Pennsylvania Railroad; having exerted myself for years to encourage the investment of capital in such companies for the purpose of establishing a business which I considered essential to the success and satisfactory operation of your road, I hope that apology will be required for this communication. A period of service embracing nearly ten years in the various offices of Assistant Engineer, Superintendent, Chief Engineer and Director, has w terminated, and my connection with the road has ceased. I have also withdrawn either entirely or partially from several of the companies which I assisted in organizing. Personal interests have t suggested this communication; but I still retain a desire to see the Pennsylvania Railroad become an instrument of more extended utility to the public, a means of further developing the resources of the State, and a source of ample remuneration to its stockholders. I feel also under imperative obligations as far as possible to protect those who have invested capital on my recommendation from the consequences of the erroneous views which are prevalent in reference to the cost of transportation upon the Pennsylvania Railroad.
