Abstract

"I am instructed by the Executive Committee of this Company to ask your official answer to this question. ### Is there any liability, and, if so, to what amount, by our Sub Company to the Parent Company for machines either lost or destroyed, either by fire, or theft, or accident? ### Supposing, for example, a customer removes to Canada, or Calcutta, and takes the instrument with him and we never again get trace of either customer or instrument, what do you claim from us in the premises?### Supposing, again, that by accident a machine is utterly destroyed, as for example, by a fall upon it of plaster from the ceiling, or a fall upon it of some other heavy substance totally destructive and wholly unpreventable, what is our liability to you in the premises?"
