Abstract

Recd business directory [for E Pen I think]; "We have been working exceedingly hard on our speaking telegraph and at last have got it in good shape and [I?] hope it will soon be in such a condition that it will soon bring in some money." ". . . Mr Preece spent four different days with us, and we just showed him lots of things he did not know." not very legible but appears to be about Preece exhibiting telephone before Soc of Tel Eng and British Assoc. infringement with Freeman of Manchester does Tom know anything about him; speaking telegraph being exhibited at Permanent Exhibition in Phil; "We have two or three splendid irons in the fire at present but they are all telegraphic. The `Pen business' is increasing very rapidly and we have raised the price to $50 and $60 and they sell more now than they ever did."
