Abstract

I hear you are developing a cotton harvester; as a representative of the estate of my late father, Col. Edmond Richardson, the largest cotton planter in the world, I am interested in the development of such machines; would like to hear from you about it before I invest in other machines; we plant about 30,000 acres of cotton and would purchase many machines if you perfect one.
