Abstract

Reply to yours of 17. Understand that orders for fibres and carbons (for Batchelor?) are separate. Batchelor wrote a letter saying we should order the 30,000 fibres which is about the number covered by the two orders. I understood from you & Insull that we couild write to Mr.Batchelor and quote prioces and that you would send us the orders without the price. You also critized the prices of the large fibres; we've revised priice list as follows. Have kept up the price of the reg. A and B as the order is mostly for these and reduced the price of the larger fibrers as so to the be very low. Have reduced price of carbonizing below cost, if he pays the price of the fibres, so as to tempt him to have his carbonizing done here.
