Abstract

"I beg again to call your attention to the matter of the Laboratory Bills. We received this morning a lot of bills for the month of May, no mention whatever being made of the month of June. I really must have a more businesslike arrangement with reference to the rendering of these bills. We have to enjoy the privilege of paying them and under those circumstances we have a right to demand that they be rendered promptly. Some of the charges are simply outrageous. I propose to take the whole batch down to Llewelyn Park and see Mr. Edison personally about them. You charge us for material about double what we bill same to you at. I do not know whether the Labor pay-roll is made out on the same basis. It will take more than the profits of an ordinary business to meet the charges received from Orange for Experimental Account."
