Reference numberMS/929/1/195
TitleLetter from A. F. Spooner, Chartered Patent Agent, 323 High Holborn, London, to James Mackenzie Davidson
Date5 November 1902
DescriptionRefers to the Cox 'break' question. Explains that he pointed out their objection to 'the Doctor''s firm listing the break at a cheaper price than Cox, to which the Doctor replied that he did not think Cox owned exclusive rights to the [Mackenzie Davidson] break. Explains that he then commented to the Doctor that Newton & Co. did have exlcusive rights to the break, and the move from Newton to Cox would suggest the transferal of these exclusive rights. Suggests the less said on this now the better, unless of course the Doctor continues to sell the breaks at a reduced price.
