Business Letter from The Computing Scale Company

This letter seems to be a response of disgust from a former manager, V.E. Wampler, of The Computing Scale Company of Dayton Ohio, which was a division of IBM at the time. The letter dates all the way back to 1894 when the company had a total worth of 160,000 USD. The Computing Scale Company manager seems to be unhappy with his customer, J.S. Famous, as it sounds that Famous had backed out of a deal of some sort to buy one of their scales. It is a wonder if a resolution to this deal was ever able to be made.
