Abstract

The A. B. Dick Co. of 214 Lake St. Chicago, have written me in reference to the money in Canada for the sale fo the Edison Mimeograph, which is at the moment for producing duplicate copies of Autograph Writing, about which I conversed with you when last in Canada. The Company states that Mr. J. H. Duthie [???] have advised them to write you in regard to obtaining a suitable connection for them in Toronto. They will send you full information in regard to the work which this instrument accomplishes, and I have also asked them to send you a sample of the machine which you can use when negotiating with whatever parties you consider may be suitable. I would suggest that you see Pengough He seems to have a good connection in Canada, and through the medium of his Typewriter Agents ought to be able to do good work. ## If the A. B. Dick Co. don't state in their letter to you what terms they will make for this Canadian business you had better ask them to give you their terms, and that will be a basis upon which you can operate when negotiating with those whom you select as general Agents. ## If you want any further information in regard to the matter let me know and I will be glad to give it to you.
