Abstract

I return you your memoranda of 7th with reference to Lamps & indicators. ## I desire it to be distinctly understood that there is no attempt on the part of the Lamp Co to keep your Company in the dark. It is curious that reports adverse to our lamps come from Cincinnati whereas from Chicago we get just the opposite opinion.
