Abstract

"Tenner has told me about the Minneograph, and that Dick has control of it. Is this so? In what countries is it patented, if anywhere? What is its cost manufactured in America? Both this and the typewriter could be handled to great advantage through our agencies. Whatever profit was made would be clear gain. ### Speaking of typewriters, is there anything in some form of electrical typewriter which I have seen reference to? Something, as I understand, which communicates the impression of the type to the paper by means of electricity. If there be such a thing, and it is practical, I would like to know everything about it. Perhaps you will ask Mr. Tate to so much oblige me as to write me this information." tae Marginalia: "Never heard E Type W [unclear] Contact write him"]
