Lasker:

Well, anyway it didn't hurt me.

Q:

It didn't hurt you, and then you just disappeared. You didn't stay for any kind of conversation.

Lasker:

You see the fountain in the river? In the park, you know.

Q:

This one was put in by a man named Delacort.

Lasker:

Oh, yes, and the big lake and the pond in the park. Somebody could have put in six or seven around the periphery of that, and it would have been very pretty in the center of the city.

Q:

Well, it was very attractive here and very unique, but it's very reminiscent of the one you put down in the Potomac at Haine's Point.

Lasker:

Yes. That went out of order, and they never fixed it.

Q:

Oh, they didn't?

Lasker:

No. If I'd fixed it, it would have cost hundreds of thousands of dollars.

Q:

Well, it was of a different construction. This is above water, and that was below water, wasn't it?

Lasker:

I'll have to get a picture and look at it.
