Abstract

"On March 30th 1886 I wrote you re draft of proposed agreement covering use of phonoplex on B & O lines, to which I have had no reply. I would be glad to have you take this subject up at your earliest convenience in order that we may place the matter in definite formal shape." Marginalia by TAE: "Tate--See to this I have been helping Bates on his fire alarm telegh & suggested that we could get a great deal of pleasure by scratching each others back occassionally so if you will follow this up you can get Bates to introduce phonoplex more largely -- attend to it promptly pls"
