In the meantime I have simply acknowledged Mr McClement’s letter and stated the fact of my having written you fully, requesting you to call and make a personal explanation. ### ENCLOSURE: Chart of proportion of profits on sales of dynamos----For royalty on the following socket & receptacles----For royalty on following regulators manufactured at Sherbrooke-----For royalty on following ammaters manufactured at Sherbrooke####For proportion of profit on sundry sales as represented by credit balance of this account, viz: $521.07 Edison Electric Light Company
