Every engine should be numbered, so that the drivers of any vehicles need have no more to do, than just give the offending number to the constable ; the traction> engine men at present defy the vehicle drivers knowing that a man driving by himself can't possibly leave his horse and buggy to ask them their names, during six years I have only met two engine drivers really willing to stop and make room. I am, etc., Viator.
