Abstract

Had private information from largest AngloIndia shareholder that proposed Oriental settlement would be approved; everything appeared in order for final ratification. But at last minute AngloIndia investors demand not to bear any legal costs of other vendors. Agreed to this with Hubbard upon understanding that issue of costs will be reopened later; drew up memo of principle on which expenses should be charged. Max expenses for TAE interests set at 2,800 pounds. FINALLY Oriental shareholders adopt resolutilon for settlement. MOney should be paid within 10 days. RE: your cable of 10 Dec saying you know nothing of Indian patent carbon transmt patent, think it's probably part of the phonograph patent taken out by BrewerJensen 20 March 1879. Please check and resolve quicklly. Still nothing settled about the 4,000 Gower-Bell telephones.
