Abstract

"You would confer a great favor upon me if you would take up the matter of a new price on the Edison hundred hour battery and supplies for same. We are being very severely criticised by our sub-companies on account of the prices charged for parts of the battery. For instance, a jar at 40 cents that some of them claim they can buy at home at from 15 to 18 cents. The difference between the two prices is such that it occasions dissatisfaction and leaves them under the impression that our entire business all through is conducted on the same scale and that we are making a hundred per cent. profit In the articles that we sell to them."
