Abstract

"Having written you yesterday regarding the Phonoplex, I now write you regarding the Phonograph. I have already asked you when I could have one or two instruments, and I now wish to know having had some communication with parties here to-day, what arrangement could be made regarding the sale of the instrument, or its manufacture. ### What would the rights for Canada be sold for, or would you prefer to retain all rights, making with me a manufacturing and selling agreement only. ### I see you have formed a Company in the States, and judging from its membership, I assume it will be a close corporation, and that you would prefer such an arrangement here. ### What special machinery would be required, and what would be the cost thereof assuming that we would never thave to supply in Canada more than one-fifth the number that would be required in the States? ### By giving this matter your prompt attention, and communicating with me your decision at your earliest convenience, you will much oblige." Yours truly, A.J. Lawson [Marginalia: "Ans. 26/5/85"]
