With it, was Butler's standard contract terms which included a price variation clause, so if their manufacturing costs went up, that price rise would be passed on to Ex-Cell-O. The buyers were only prepared to have one of these very expensive machines on their own terms. But I think that the documents have to be considered as a whole.
