FINE WORK ALWAYS WINS APPRECIATION FROM WORTHWHILE MEN
President L. H. Murlin of Boston University has written a letter to Mayor Andrew J. Peters highly praising the work of the fire department at the recent fire in the Murlin home. The letter, which the mayor forwarded to Fire Commissioner John R. Murphy, is in part as follows:
“I am writing this letter to express my great admiration for the skill shown by the men from the fire department who had charge of fighting this particular fire. Although directed to the wrong place, they reached us in an incredibly short space of time. They seemed to know almost by instinct where the difficulty was and knew to an exact science what they needed to do, and proceeded to do it with such quietnees as to amaze me; there wasn’t a wrong move or a mis-hit in anything they did. There was no wasting of energy or words. Everything moved with clock-like precision; the fire was cut out with all the scientific skill of a surgeon performing a delicate operation.
“I wish to know, and also to let the fire chief know, what fine work these men did and how deeply I appreciate their prompt and efficient aid.”
