Abstract

Party who wants light is VP of law firm; his house boasts some of NY's finest people. He had wanted Maxim light but I put a damper on that. Send someone soon to estimate. I also promised to tell Herald people when you're ready. I can get all newspaper offices in city to order your light which "would give great eclat to the system and prove a wet blanket for Sawyer, Maxim and the other carpers..." With your system before their eyes, the press would sit down on all the others.
