The Cameron Water-works Construction and Plumbing Company.
To the Editor of FIRE AND WATER.
I notice in your issue of the 18th inst. an item to the effect that the Cameron Water-works Construction and Plumbing Company of Memphis, Tenn., had made an assignment, I would like to explain through your columns that the reason for the appointment of a receiver to wind up the affairs of the company was the fact that the company decided not to continue the business, as I had resigned the management to accept the position of general manager of the water works department of J. B. Clow & Son, of this city. The concern was perfectly solvent. W. L. CAMERON.
