Abstract

[SERM letterhead] My Dr. U.H. The fight is on. V[illard] & E have given their brokers orders to buy Sprague from under me. I have in turn started to corral my friends so they will only part with it to me. Please write me stating the no of shares you have and that you will hold them subject to my advice. I have taken up my loans at [r's?] & am now in full possession of all my Sprague stock so that with those who will act with me I am sure of a clear majority. There is to be a meeting on Monday to finally settle the question whether the Edison Co will buy out the Sprague or not. The old crowd is at work buying up & will make money on this deal as they did on the other. Yours Truly E.H.J.
