Abstract

"Referring to the Coquimbite battery that we put up at Altoona Mr Quimby says the price is 2,50 per cell. He made the price to us 1.70 per cell. He also says that he sells the coquimbite at 7 cents per pound but will not sell the P.R.R. any of it less than the price you propose charging them for it. If the battery now up at Altoona works satisfactory they will keep it., if not for the Phone they will probably use it in other ways. My object in writing this is to get you to name a price so in case the Railroad people buy direct from Quimby the prices charged will not conflict. Division Operator Taylor asked me the price of the Coquimbite I told him that I could not tell him as I neglected to ascertain. When I return to equip the new Phone Offices I will be asked the same questin and if I give the same answer it might look fishy." Yours very truly, W.S. Logue [Marginalia: "Ans Jan 4/88"]
