Abstract

"I have received the Guarantee which we are to give the Detroit Co., from Mr. Tate. He says that you don't want any more Guarantees of this nature entered into. This is not a portion of this years business; it is last years business. We were engaged in a great fight to get our Detroit contact a year ago this month, and the only way to get it was to give such a guarantee. Although I don't believe in giving any such Guarantees, I think it was wise to do so in this particular instance; it has left us entirely untramelled this year so far as competition is concerned. I will be careful not to give any such Guarantee in the future."
