Editor's Notes

[Letterhead: Hall's Safe & Lock Company] "Will you please see that the statements suggested and promised by you, shall be made out & sent to me."; refers to patent infringement and notes that "every extension instrument the J. Co have sold or made which will work at all has my patent High temperature Extention. Now we will see how the other Ox likes to be gored"; could give a Sunday school lecture on honesty "now that breaking open Desks to steal papers, lying circulars, and all such smart alec business dont pay."###"Now can this phunny business be made to work by the great operator & would be statesman, who is always accompanied by a Brass band when he hunts Ducks & a Reporter when he goes to the Water Closet." [Might be selectable if it can be determined to whom he is referring.]
