Abstract

TAE did not reply to your letter because he was traveling when it arrived and it miscarried when forwarded to him; he has dropped negotiations with American Bell and will not continue telephone experiments, but I will inform you if he does. Insull provides detailed description of Gilliland's new carbon transmitter "which is vastly superior to any previously brought out" and compares it to the Blake and Edison transmitters. American Bell owns U.S. patent and is considering installing them throughout the country; Gilliland's transmitter would be of value to United Telephone Co.; would they buy the English patent?; cable me if United is interested and I will supply specimen instruments and instructions.
