General Commander-in-Chief of the Surka Forces,
Thapathali Durbar, Nepal, India.
Dear Sir:-
I have your letter of the 12th of April, together with the copies of communications to which you refer. The two concerns in question are not my direct representatives, but simply dealers, and buying and paying for goods just the same as all other dealers. I have no personal interest in either of the concerns, but will say that so far as I know they are entirely honest, and any orders that you place with them will doubtless be filled satisfactorily. I would suggest, however, that should you require any additional materials manufactured by my different concerns, if you will send them direct to me I will have them filed satisfactorily. They are both quite good customers and in competing for business they evidently go beyond ordinary business lines and endeavor to throw odium on one another. I do not personally approve of such methods, but of course have no control over them.
Trusting that the above explanation is entirely in order, and with best wishes, believe me,
Yours very truly
Thomas A. Edison
