Yesterday Gunther took us to task for not knowing about Treadwell.

Well, he did not really take us to task. But since he knows so much more than the rest of us we felt like we were being taken to task.

So this Daniel Treadwell was a great mechanical mind.

With this attribute he helped us to understand boilers; steel plate and rivets and the things that made up boilers.
