Title

[D7940B], Letter from George Harrison Bliss to Thomas Alva Edison, January 23rd, 1879

Editor's Notes

"Mystified" by sale of French patent. Papers report sale for much higher price than TAE expected. Barton reported that TAE said Bliss would have $3-4000 and stock; now he said TAE will give $10,000 in stock and $7-800 cash. Your latest letter says $3-4000 stock and only $625 cash. Sorry to have expectations raised to such heights but only wants what's fairly his. Marg: "Barton probably didnt understant. Dont belv newspaper repts. 10,000 [dollars?] from Puskas & deducted from that advances & telephones sent to him. A portion of that 10000 belonged to you; after figuring it up sent you. I have recd no shares yet as soon as recd you will get your portion accdg to contract."
