This interview took place surrounded by cases of beer stacked to the ceiling in a storage room at State Line Liquors in Elkton, Maryland. Murray offers perspective on the craft brewing industry from the point of view of the alcohol retailer, detailing the evolution of the beer retail space over several decades. The environment yeilded excellent recording conditions, with the exception of music and occasional announcements coming over the public address system.

Hubbard, T. J. (correspondent), Edwards, Nora C. (correspondent), Edwards Skirt Supporter Company (correspondent)
Hubbard reports from Pittsburgh that she has met with the K. Soloman Co. and that the buyer there liked the supporters but would not put them in stock without a demonstration. The buyer told her that in order to sell the supporters successfully they will need to demonstrate a few days in each store, and Hubbard states she will do what she can while she remains in that city. She encloses a list of recent orders she has taken along with the commission due to her.
