In 1984, John R. Lawson II spotted a distinctive piece of mail at the office.  He knew that the onion-skin envelope — used at that time to reduce the cost of air mail — contained a British company’s letter of intent to buy Newport News-based W.M. Jordan Co., the construction firm Lawson’s father, Robert, and William Jordan founded in 1958. The purchase price already had been set, and employees had been informed of the pending deal.
