Clevelanders  Abroad

ITHACA, May 11, 1881.

Ed. Lakeside Pres.

 

   Perhaps some of the readers of the Pawns would like to learn how, largely Cleveland is represented in Ithaca.  The first nineteen of the following named gentlemen were in the employ of C. Getman when his works burned Dec. 30th, 1880.  That sad event caused them, with many other workman of the destroyed factories, to leave for different parts of this and other Slates to obtain work. The said nineteen, with other Clevelanders, are at present working at the Washington glass works of this place:

 

Master-Sheerer: Valentine Ballsizer

Blowers: Wm. L. Snyder (also manager), John Kime, Henry Grismyer, Wm. Hamilton, Ransy Buck;

Gatherers:  A. Watson, Geo. Lenning, Henry Grismyer, Jr., Joseph Bonneau, C. Hamilton

 

Second Master Sheerers:  Henry Hamilton, James Bortle

Stoker:  Chas. Drum
Flatteners: Wm Best, Adam Leonard, Frank Best

Cutters: Chas. Crispin, J. F. Landgraff, R. Albertson

Blower: Louis Best

 

Two furnaces are in blast now, and quite a business is being done considering the very warm weather that has so early visited us.
