Abstract

"I have been to Montreal and seen Lawson with reference to the Incandescent Co., and he has placed the matter in my hands, giving me the terms I asked namely - 50 shares of Capital stock of the company, I to do all the legal work in connection with it for nothing, except disbursements, which the Company pays. He has given me until the 1st. of January. As to Barr, he has charge of the plant; he is coming to Toronto next week, and I shall spend some four or five days with him. I have every reason to believe that a Company can be negotiated and floated this fall. ### If you can give me any suggestions I shall be glad to hear from you. I just got down to Montreal in time as Mr. Barr had already broached the subject of a Toronto station to Mr. Colson a Broker, he is a brother of the Assistant Manager of the Bank of Montreal, and must be pretty strong man financially, so you see I did well in going down when I did. How about the Phonograph, I think Sterling will go down to New York about the end of next week. ### I have not heard from home for some little time, I am going down on Saturday to stay til Monday night." Yours truly, W.H. Dean [Marginalia: "Ans 11/8/88"]
