Tragical starting - spring 1830
Wolicki ordered and with this duty machines he arose pretty well. And despite this - just whether it it is not better from machines yet English technicians' personnel was: the engineer William Preacher from machine factory on Solec and mechanics: John Founes Pace and the WilliamMac Connol. If machines were so well tinned then then therefore, that they taught this our mechanics not only professional, but first of all reliable and conscientious work. Installation 27 machine tools and drills - just except English more far produced already factory on Solec - mechanic directed Pace. "The spring 1830 year - how Jan writes Pazdur - in eve of prospective arrival the comission from Warszawa, in persons Piotra Micha³owskiego, the later famous painter and Leona Sapiehy, John recommended the Pace to raise the flood-gate to to make sure or the whole functions without accusation. Having noticed in time of movement the need of small correction, he approached to screw tight slack screws personally. They kidnapped cog-wheel him for jacket, and got lost on the spot.”
I over this grave will return in next report yet - because saddens me and angers, that nor Pace, nor so many of different dead the and carbon papers it near building and production did not it wait for it then the poetry, but just the beautiful prose which their memory would keep. Let's there nowlet's finish about these chapter first, what work dead they led still.
