Dear Sir

Business of importance has detained me until in very late this evening as to prevent my writing as I expected it to. I shall endeavour to do so tomorrow and submit a plan which if acceptable will releive [sic] both you and me from further antagonism. I am in hopes of having time tomorrow to replace the parts of one of Car Models. Which I had taken apart. when this is done they are of your dispose. Of course I refer to the original Models.1

Yours &c,
William Dunn

1 Calvin Brooks was awaiting the arrival of the models but several mix-ups prevented him from acquiring them for some time and it is not absolutely certain whether or not he received them at all (W1728). It appears that Dunn was giving up his machine patents and models as repayment for money that Calvin Brooks' brother, Isaac, had invested in the patents. See W2554a.
