Dear Dr. Banting,
I have placed on file Martindale's applica-
tion. I had already heard from their Toronto agents concern-
ing the matter to which they referred in the letter.
With reference to the basic patent I wish
it to be understood that I personally do not believe it necessary
for you to take this out in your own name. I am only acting
as Secretary of the Committee in seeing that their instructions
as to patents are carried through vlith reasonable expedition.
I understand that Mr. Riches has advised that your name should
appear on the patents, and on that account therefore, am trying
to get the necessary formalities completed. I have rung up
Mr. Riches again, since delay in having these matters settled
is causing me considerable embarrassment in my work as Secretary.
of the Committee.
J.J.R.I1./I-1M.E.A. Yours very truly
