Abstract

"I was over to see the Westinghouse people and find they are agreeable. They desire, however, to run out patent puley moulding plant with their own men Cooley[?] (father and son). They think that they can do better and make more money on the work and give us equally as good if not better satisfaction. They gave me to understand that Cokely had spoken to Cooley[?], and mentioned that he desired to go on the road, as I imagine, to promote his interests in that direction. I have not seen Cokely, but think it would be well for you to See Livor as to the matter and get his views on same. The Westinghouse people do not object to starting even with Cokely, but they would prefer it if we could arrange fo them to run it themselves. The price of all castings, both large and small, is to be 2 3/8 cents, and a variation of this would only occur should iron rise in price $2. or more, or fall in price $2. or more, from present rates. per ten. They distinctly understand that this is only temporary until we have put up a foundary of our own. ## Payment they desire to be made as follows: One-third by check and the other two-thirds by three months' note, and to be regular monthly settlements."
