Abstract

"I enclose herewith the important of letter of Chares A. Cheever, et. al., and should advise you to mail ot back to me, with a notice that their assumption is without the shadows of foundation; that no such election was held at the office of the Company; and none of the gentlemen therein named received any votes whatever, and that the only inference is that these assumpsions are for some purpose which do not appear on the face, and which are foreign to the interest of any stockholder. ## Mry Byington saw their New Haven Lawyer and came down with them, and he remarked to Byington, 'Well we had a little circus in there, but let you have your meeting in Lockwood's office in peace.' ## This shows that they dare not come to the Company's office well knowing that they would not be able to accomplish their object which was to set up the shadow or an organization."
