Abstract

"I have just returned from a meeting with Mr. Johnson. I told him what Painter's demands were, that you divide the amount you are to receive equally with the Speaking Phonograph Co. He said that if Mr. Painter took this position, he would not stand by him in it. That he did not propose to get anything out of you, but that he did propose to get something out of me. He said that he was arranging by telegraph to meet you; that he would then see Painter and afterwards see me. He said that they had no intention of acting "the hot," but that they would deal fairly with me, but he did not intimate what "fairly" indicated in dollars." Very truly yours, Jesse H. Lippincott "P.S. I will write you tomorrow in regard to the Sept 1st payment."
