Thomas A. Edison, [illegible text],
Mr. Randolph, Manager,
Orange, N. J.
Dear sir:
Some say since our representative called on you and your representative said the American Watchman's detector was not in use as it [decided?] to be out of order.
If you care to ship it to us by express we will overhaul it and put the [illegible] in good order free of charge to you.
We believe that if you let us furnish our magnets stations to generate this clock, same as we do for all the new clocks we are now putting out, that we would have no trouble with [crosses?] or grounds is such station generates its own power to operate the clock and the wires out be in much worse condition without cutting out the record. Our regular price for the magnetic stations is [$5.0?] each/but we will [make?] you a special cost price of [$3.00?] each for them and if you order them at the time the clock is being overhauled we will arrange the electrical part of clock for the Magnetic System and have our man come and put the [magnetos?] and clock up. You to pay us by furnishing us with one of the Correspondence Phonographs with 110 Volt direct current all new and up to date complete. This will make the Watchman's clock system so that you will have no further trouble with it unless your wiring gets broken down.
Hoping this will meet with your approval, we are
Yours truly
W. [illegible]. Pettes
