Abstract

Making a dozen telephone sets; please send dozen chalk wheels. Everyone who uses them says regular Edison transmitters made for G&S are better than those contained in your boxes. Better transmitters & require no adjustment. Annot on reverse: "the insts you are making must differ from those we are in habit of purchasing from you. Anyone can see our inst is most simple & compact of form. When ready, send down chalk holders and will fill them with chalk...."
