Wednesday, June 13 (1945)

Wattaday. Hot sweltering but no rain. Sunspot reported. Started off with a rush with condenser. Had it in new position by 9:00 and by 10 was ready to connect to old tank.Then trouble. They had left too many field welds to be made and insisted on "fitting" whole affair before welding up. The "fitting" took from 10 AM to 6 PM. Finally got steam back on at 7:45 (1945!) Also, in spite of everything Main had done, we found foundations 1 1/2 inch off. Something went wrong in steam dept and Jones was nearly knocked off high scaffold and was drenched by hot water on vent pipe work. Miss Sampson collapsed from bad teeth and had to go to hospital! Wattaday!
