[LM022272], Letter from Ezra Torrance Gilliland to Albert Blake Dick, December 14th, 1888

Abstract

"At about the time I had an interview with Col. Gouraud in London, relative to Mimeograph affairs and was about to write you, I was taken sick and have been unable to attend to business until quite recently. As I intend going to Chicago the latter part of December or first of January, I will not attempt to go into the matter at this time but will then give you all the points that I have concerning the matter referred to, when I can see you and talk with you personally. I will say, however, that I do not think you can ever get a proposition from Col. Gouraud that you would be willing to accept. The schemes which he proposes are altogether too one sided in his interest and practically amount to your sounding all of the expense if it is a failure and he getting all the benefits if it is successful. He may have modified his views, however, by this time but his ideas, as set forth to me, was substantially what I have indicated. ### I presume you have heard that all business relations between Mr. Edison and myself have been permanently ended."
