Chicago, Sept., 25, 1901
Mr. W.E. Gilmore,
V.P. & G.M. Edison Mfg. Co.,
Orange, N.J.
Dear Sir:-
Referring to the report sent you of my visit to Washington, the copy of my letter to Mr. Darlton, which I sent you, and the copy of his reply which I also sent you.
You will note that he made no reply to that part of my letter asking him if he would act as agent. If the facts are as he states that Mr. Daves., is only getting up a diagram, and not specifications, there will be plenty of time to take the matter up a little later, you will remember that Mr. Peddle, also told me that there was plenty of time. Mr. Darlton, promised to write me as soon as he saw Mr. Daves, this has been a week or ten days ago; of course it is possible that he has not seen him, but it seems to me that if the gentlemen felt very interested in the matter we should have heard from him before this.
You will remember we discussed getting our friend in Baltimore, interested enough in the matter to call upon Gen'l Mngr., Gannon, and see what could be done, or what could be found out.
The Baltimore man, is expected in Chicago, in a week or so. Have you any suggestions to make as to how I should talk to him? You will understand this without making it any plainer.
I suppose I will be asked as to the number or cells of batteries that have been furnished to the Hall Signal Company, on the twenty-five hundred cells ordered. What reply shall I make?
Yours very truly,
W.S. Logue
