Abstract

"I remember a conversation which I had with you some time ago during which, if I am not mistaken you gave it as your opinion that it was unnecessary to file [any?] reports with the State authorities. Mr. Tomlinson tells me that he does not think your Company has filed a report since its organization. The Lamp Co. was incorporated by Mr. Tomlinson and he showed me the New Jersey Statute providing for these annual reports which does not by any means bear out your opinion, if as I said, I am deceived by my memory. ### The Lamp Company will have to pay a fine of Two Hundred Dollars for each year that failure has been made to file its report from which it would appear that you already owe the state about $1000. This matter is worth looking into. I notice in today's "World" that one of the trustees of a Company has been stuck for $25000, having become liable for the Company's debts thro its failure to file its annual report. Forewarned should be forearmed." Yours truly, A.O. Tate
