Our sales department has just called my attention to
your letter of the 20th, also to item appearing in the Pacif
jc Commercial Advertiser of Honolulu under date ofFr
day, November 20th last, in which I was indeed surprised
to sec the statement that the Chalmers-Detroit $1500.00
car was made by the Dcroit Thomas factory. This statement
was evidently made thiough nn error on the 'part of tho
person making it, who probably supposed that the E. R.
Thomas Detroit Co. was still in existence. This, however,
is not the fact, as my active interest in the E. R. Thomas
Detroit Co. ceased nearly a year ago, at which time tho
Company was dissolved and lias not been in existence since.
The Chalmers-Detroit Co. was organized to take over the
business of the E. B. Thomas Detroit Co., and although I
still have a financial interest in the Chalmers-Detroit Co.,
I have no active inteiest therein and have not had since Its
formation, my entire time and attention being given to the
active management of the E. R. Thomas Motor Co., of this
My reason for writing you is that I wish to prevent
any confusion on your part or that of your customers as to
the relationship existing between this Company and the
