Abstract

Confirming Mr Insulls interview with you on Saturday I beg to state that I am willing that you should dispose of our electric light interests for norway Sweden & Portugal on the basis of half the profits to us and half to the Parties undertaking the exploitation of the system. I should like to get a cash payment on the signing of the Contract if possible but I will not insist on it. In any event I think the purchasers should reimburse first Drexel Morgan & Co the amount they have expended on Patents. Care should be taken to enclude the Electric Rail Road from any arrangement that may be made.##Indian & Colonial##Referring to Col Frenchs suggestion that the owners of the Patents (D. M. & C. & myself) should forego the cumulative 5% Dividend on their "A" shares for a few years I am willing to do in this matter whatever you may think best.
