Cowles, whose family had a store in Worthington, Connecticut and whose relatives operated the Cowles Manufacturing Company, East Granby, CT., manufacturer of spoons, and it is claimed was the first to make a practical success of electric plating.  Bemus laments losing his business partner and that a potential investor has no experience in his retail business.  He wants Cowles to become his partner.  Good content.  Letter easy to read and in excellent condition.
