[D8026A], Letter from Grosvenor Porter Lowrey to Thomas Alva Edison, January 2nd, 1880

Abstract

"I should think you would be entirely worn out" and justified in not receiving visitors until more lamps finished. Visited by man with strong backing in Germany, interested in Light. Suggested that you might sell part or all your interest in Banker's Co on Continent. Could probably get large sum for you. Told Serrell to prepare assignments or licenses for Cuba. Sign these before transferring pats. Banker wants Porto Rico. How about coming to Tarrytown? Authorized by ELight Co to make contract with Wilber. PS Fabbri & Chauncy ask if SAmerica ore milling is to be negotiated. If so, let me deal with them for you.
