day, November 20th last, in which I was indeed surprised
to see the statement that the Chalraers-Detroit $1500.00
car was made by the Dcroit Thomas factory. This statement
was evidently made through an error on the part of the
person making it, who probably supposed that the E. B.
Thomas Detroit Co. was still in existence. This, however, "
is not the fact, as my active interest in the E. R. Thomas
Detioit Co. ceased nearly a year ago, at which time the
Company was dissolved and has not been in existence since.
The Chalmers-Detroit Co. was organized to take over the
business of the E. H. Thomas Detroit Co, and although I
still have a financial interest in the Chalmers-Detroit Co,,
I have no active interest therein and have not had since its
formation, my entire, time and attention being given to tho
active management of the E. R. Thomas Motor Co , of this
My reason for writing you is that I wish to prevent
any confusion oh ,your part or that of your customers as to
the relationship existing between this" Company and the
Chalmers-Detroit Co. As stated above, they are entirely sep

STIRS UP THE FANS
A Chalmers-Detroit Letter
Detroit, Mich., U. S, A.,
, December,. 7, 1908.
Sales Manager's Office,
Messrs. . 0. Hall & Son,
Cor. Fort and King Sts
Honolulu, T. H. ,
In reply to your letter of Novem
ber 23rd. Mr. E. R. Thomas is still
very much interested in our concern.
He is a member of the board of di
rectors, and still, has a large interest
in the concern. When Mr. Hugh
Chalmers bought a certain amount of
Mr. Thomas' stock he became presi
dent of this concern. JUr. Chalmers
was Vice-President and General Man
ager of the National Cash Register
Company for a number of years, and '
' on account of being so well known
he was made President of the E. R.
Thomas-Detroit Company, and conse
auently the name was changed, and
the car named after Mr. Chalmers on
account of his standing throughout
the country. This was positively tho
ony change that was made in tho
organization, except such changes as
Mr. Chalmers made to improve the
organization. The Chalmers-Detroit
Forty of today is the same car that
has been built for the last two years,
and which, was called the Thomas
