Abstract

"We are credible informed by one of our agents in Germany that Mr. Armin Tenner is manufacturing an imitation of the Mimeograph in that Country to compete with our agents, and we take this opportunity of notifying you (for your information only) that he has treated his negotiations with us in a manner wholly unbecoming a man of strict business principles. It may or may not be possible for us to check-mate him, at the same time we will do our utmost. ### Mr. Tenner was recommended to us by Mr. E.T. Gilliland and we made him a small shipment of Mimeographs some months ago, but failed to close arrangments with him for handling them on extensive scale for the reason, as he stated, that he could not afford to handle the Mimeograph without the Phonograph, and he had lost the agency for the latter." Yours very truly, A.B. Dick
