Abstract

"I found your note re Phonograph Company tax on my desk when I came in. It seems that just before you left, Mr. Parmly had been in to see me, and dictated a memorandum to Miss Bennett about this same matter. He says "if Mr. Kiddle will arrange a time with Mr. Tate to-morrow or next day, either here, or at my office in Jersey City, and let me know the time, I will be sure and meet Mr. Tate, as the tax has already been assessed at $1200 and there is every prospect of having it thrown off if immediately attended to". ### Mr. Parmly is a member of the firm of Parmly Olendorf & Fisk, 47 Montgomvery Street, Jersey City. He also has an office at No. 160 Broadway, Room 9. ### This matter has, in my opinion, been delayed now about long enough, and if you want to have the tax reduced you had beeter see Mr. Parmly to-morrow and have him prepare such an affidavit as he thinks proper to present to the Tax Commissioners at Trenton. You know that he has already appeared before them and they objected to reduce the tax, and this is the final step in order to accomplish it." Yours very truly, A.W. Kiddle
