[letterhead of president of New England Mutual Life Insurance Co] Knowing that you would not be at home until last evening I had refrained from wrirting you about some of the points alluded to in our conversation a week ago at Orange. ## I am told that there are no dolls here to send on to you as Mr [illeg] thought there might be. How soon may your woriing model be expected so that the Co [illeg] may know what number of dolls or parts of dolls [illeg] abroad? ## I am of the impression that you said Mr Dick had [met a person?] in Sonnenborg Ger named Tischer who told him that Jacques & Briggs had ordered a quantity of dolls without paying for them etc & you also thought it was in the correspondence a copy of which was handed to me by Mr Tate. since I saw you I have carefully examined that document & other matters not alluded. If you have anything from Mr. Dick relating to it will you look it over again? Mr. Briggs told me yesterday that a person named Hunt in the employ of Partridge & Co. doll dealers in thie city went over to Sonnenberg & ordered [some few?] doz dolls as samples of a maker named (I think) Escher--not Fischer--that those dolls came out & were in the office here sometime & that Hunt sent for them & took them away. . . . ."
