Abstract

[Letterhead of E.T. Gilliland]. Received TAE's letter, also the borrowed{?} letter. Can't leave much before the first of the month; "it was my intention to come in about 2 days before Mina is due here and then you can come back with me." Understand Mina is to leave there next Thursday{?}, which would probably bring her here Monday 3:00 PM. Harkins is in NY, he will be here Sunday or I would come out on Saturday evening. Monday would also work as I am having the NY wires that run into the flat put in order and one of the new transmitters connected in and have written to Bergmann to put one at your end. Lockwood after me to take out the foreign patents on the new transmitter, "can't Dyer go ahead and do it?" Why won't Jim answer my letter or telegrams? Also enclose a clipping from a Chicago paper about Florida. "It was my intention to put the drawings in the hands of the lumber Co. and ask them to make a bid at once." [Attached to letter on next page is a note from Gilliland]: "It might be well to send these newspaper clippings to H[------] and see what he has got to say."
