The telegram pretty much tells its own story.

This telegram was saved by Kenny Prager, an SP&S engineer. Kenny had fired the 700 and was promoted to engineer about the time the 700 was retired. Kenny was subsequently involved in the restoration of the 700 by the PRPA and ran the 700 in the 1990's. Kenny's widow, Laurel Prager, brought this telegram to our annual meeting Dec 2, 2006.
