Abstract

"The contract says:-- ### 1st. B & Co. are the exclusive licensees to manufacture Equalizers. ### 2nd. Phila. Exclusive right to use and sell them in Philada. ### You will readily see therefore that technically speaking Prof. Marks has no right to purchase the Equalizers from any one but the licensed manufacturer, unless with the latter's consent and the Light Co. agree to see that proper and uniform prices are charged by the Manufacturer to the Local Co. Under these circumstances B. & Co. are technically correct in their position. If Prof. Marks' idea were carried out to its legitimate conclusion, he could also build his own Dynamos, and ask the Machine Works to estimate on the armatures, for the fields, built by some Philada. concern." Yours, Jno. McClement
