Lewis Young, who had established a company to sell mimeographs in England. There are also letters concerning A.B. Dick's possible entry into the phonograph sales business, an annual financial statement for the company, correspondence about royalty payments, and samples of mimeograph duplication. Some of the material may be partially illegible due to water damage or faded ink.
