"Our business has come to a standstill. The surgeon's knife is now required to effect a cure of the ills that we suffer from. I have applied it in the legal department by retaining [evarts] as our Advisory Counsel and instituting the great patent fight." Employing outside contractors at their own risk. Reducing list prices. Trying to "show up the swindling character of the guarantees given by our competitors." You the man to follow up on Washington Monument project; will give you every facility needed.
