Abstract

"Enclosed contracts have evidently expired -- and it transpires that my Boston friends are at work upon the toy application -- they have been here today and showed all their apparatus It is in an unfinished condition -- that is why they want another month -- but it is very cheap & they have some good ideas -- now the question arises -- who has the power to grant them a license to make this application -- these toy & clock contracts having expired the rights evidently revert to you Do you want to continue to deal with them separately or will you [---]l the whole thing? If the latter I will extend the call I have given these Gentlemen for another 30 days -- If you do not intend to hand the branch over to me then I can of course only refer them to you or act for you in the matter will you please at once signify your wishes [--] matter -- I recommend that they be given another 390 days in which to perfect their apparatus no matter who deals with them eventually"
