Columbia, S. C.,
May 26, 1921.
Mr. J. E. Philpot,
Laurens, S. C.
Dear Mr. Philpot:
It has just come to my attention
that there Is a report being circulated
from Laurens, that I have condemned
the plant at Greenwood. I am writ
ing to ask you to please contradict
this report if you hear of it.
Greenwood and Laurens have en
tirely different :problems and waters
to handle. I believe- the Greenwood
'filters -will do all they were designed
to do and there is no ground for any
report, such as I have mentioned
Thanking you in advance for any
hell) you can render me in nailing
this lie, I am,
Very truly yours,
E. L. 11ILBY,
State Sanitary Engineer.
As for the report from Georgia, I
do not know what it is nor by whom
started, but feel safe in saying that it
too was a fabrication without any
