Abstract

I received the enclosed letter from King yesterday, but was unable to send it to you until your telegram giving your address reached me. I enclosed letter from Prof. Barker and would state that I have written him saying that I would forward his letter to you with the request that you reply direct. I also enclosed a letter from Mr. Dixon. If you have anything to say to him please let me know. The gentleman who saw you with relation to one of your electric pen patents has been in here and desires something a little more formal, so as to enable him to go ahead prior to your return, he was talking about royalty and asked me what I thought you would think of 10 per cent on the selling price of the apparatus. Please give me some kind of an authority in this matter so that I can fix the thing up to the gentleman's satisifaction and then the formal papers can be executed on your return. I want you to understand that this matter is pressing. Keep me posted as to where you go so that I can wire you again.
