Correspondence, 1911

Parker Berry to Purcell, Feick, & Elmslie (February 25, 1911)
Chicago, Illinois
Feb. 25th, 1911.

Messrs. Purcell, Feick and Elmslie
            Minneapolis, Minn.


    I have discussed with Mr. Sullivan the possibility of my taking a position with you as a draftsman. We have gone over the matter carefully together and, taking into consideration Mr. Sullivan's advice and my own deliberations, I have come to the conclusion that it would be unwise for me to change my location at present. As Mr. Sullivan says, I am the point now where I can begin to branch out a little into other branches of the profession besides drafting and in view of the fact that he intends to give me opportunity to do this I this it wise for me to remain.

    I am, however, highly appreciative of the honor you have conferred upon me in offering me a position with you, and I assure that, should I think it advisable to leave Mr. Sullivan's employ, there is not firm with which I would rather become connected than yours.

Very sincerely,
P. N. Berry
