Abstract

"In reply to your favor of the 23rd, we beg leave to say that by reference to the 5th clause of your license you will see that the questions as to the destruction of machines by fire or other accident beyond your control are answered.### As to the question of theft, we expect that the local companies will thoroughly satisfy themselves as to the responsibility of the people with whom they intend to do business before the delivery of machines, ad that they will not make leases with parties who would be liable to run away with our property. Should a theft of a machine occur, the chances of which are, we think, extremely remote, we would expect the local company to reimburse us tot he extent of the cost of the machine."
