My Dear Dyer:-
I have your letter of the 16th instant, with regard to the battery business in Great Britian. I do not know how you could have expected me to give you any idea of the character of proposition which we would accept. You know quite well that we will accept anything in reason, but without more information, it is impossible to be more specific. We do not know whether Mr. Henderson wants to form a Company, or whether he will be willing to let us merchandise the cells on a basis of royalty; in fact so far as the details of the arrangement is concerned, we left the matter entirely in your hands, knowing that you would not make any arrangement that would be detrimental to our business over there. I hope you will submit soon some kind of a proposition it is, so long as it can be used as a basis upon which to start negotiations. I have instructed the factory to send you full information in regard to the new hot case batteries. I am glad to hear that you are going to write me a long letter shortly in regard to a certain being, late of London, now of New York.
Kind regards to yourself and Einberg.
Yours very truly,
A.O. Tate
