[D8027D], Letter from Edward Hibberd Johnson to Thomas Alva Edison, May 3rd, 1880

Editor's Notes

"No. The day for the Electric Pen has passed. Had it been launched in a better manner it could have held its own but there are now a multitude of new devices for transferring letters ad lib, many of them very simple & effective-& cheap. It is too late to make any headway with the E.P. against a field borne of its own seed."
