Abstract

"We expect to send to your Laboratory quite an amount of material in the shape of resistance boxes and other appliances. We wish to know whether you expect us to hold title to these, or to have them considered as part of our running experimental expenses and that you shall own them? We will do exactly as you wish in the matter. If you decide that we shall hold title and render bills to you for the amount of the goods shipped, we shall, of course, not call upon you to pay same, and give you credit for the full face of the bills at any time you wish to return them to us. If the latter course is pursued, we shall simply send you the material and charge it in our experimental account and from that into our running expense account." Marginalia by TAE: "Better charge them up to experiment & consider them lost"
