Abstract

"I have received your letter 4th inst. In regard to ampere meters which you desire the machine works to make and the drawings forwarded to me have also come to hand. ### I regret that I cannot assist you in this matter. A peculiar relation exists between the shops growing out of a long standing friendship, and a custom has arisen which forbids one from undertaking work recognized as belonging to another. ### You can well understand that the breaking of this rule might lead to complications of an unpleasant, if not serious nature, and I am therefore powerless to grant your request."
