Abstract

"We herewith enclose you a letter from the Spanish Colonial Light Company. The question of prices of lamps, is by this before us. Our impression is that we were to charge a small advance over the prices quoted illuminating companies in this country, and acting on this idea, we have charged 50 cts for regular lamps instead of 40. We do not know whether you have made any arrangements by which you share profits in Cuba; if you have not, we think it is but right that a little extra be added to the lamps to cover your rights in Cuba. ### Kindly let us hear from you on this matter as soon as convenient." TAE marginalia: "Ok, E. I will never get a cent except from the little you add on to reg. price-E."
