"Enclosed is card of introduction from Mr. Dyer with whom I have been to some extent in correspondence for some years. ### My object in writing is as a director of the International Patent Co. Limited (a Cofloated expressly + solely for exploring + selling on commission or otherwise-the 'foreign' patents of inventors) to ask you to give us the working of your Phonograph patents in Austria-Hungary and the Turkish Empire and its late dependencies Roumania, Servia + Bulgaria. We have in our employ Mr. Jamison who has lived many years in Turkey + Servia contracting and one of our managing directors Mr. Goodbody has very large connections in Austria. ### I believe Col Gouraud has this matter in hand but is desirous of "subletting," and cannot make arrangements without your sanction and to save time and in the hope of interesting you in the matter I had intended calingon you today but learned you were absent. My address for some weeks (off and on) will be New York Hotel, New York but the first three days of next week I expect to be in Washington and perhaps the last two of this week. After tomorrow week I shall have pleasure in calling on you if you desire it at any time you name." Yours truly, Wm P. Thompson
