Abstract

I have talked with some of my friends in relation to an angency for the Mimeograph and have decided that the man you meant is Mr. H.M Livor No 19 Dey (?) Street. ## Mr. Livor is the Manager of the Edison Shafting Mfg. Co has a large connection thro the state and has indicated his willingness to take charge of your business. He is perfectly familiar with the best methods of handling such an enterprise and should you decide in conformitty with my judgment would immediately establish permanent agencies where necessary and put on a force of traveling {illegible}. ## Mr. Livor states that he would like to take the state of New York and the state of New Jersey. I told him I would write you and ask you for a proposition. If you wish you can write him direct stating terms and conditions upon which you will enter into agreement with him, or if you consider that it will never facilitate matters any you can write to me and I will be very glad to render you all assistance in my power to effect a speedy settle ment and let your business {illegible} in the East. ##Unless you can make better arrangments in Boston I think you would do well to suggest that Mr. Livor take the Agency for New England in conjunction with the two states mentioned. I shall think that business could be handled as well from here or from any other point. ## I will able to write you as are long in relation to the battery which I spoke of when I had the pleasure of meeting you in Chicago.## I might add in conclusion that as Mr. Livor is already connected with a branch of Mr. Edison's business you might derive some advantage from the association.
