[D8049ZCK], Letter from George Edward Gouraud to Thomas Alva Edison, March 20th, 1880

Editor's Notes

Wasn't aware of your apparent acceptance of Bouverie plan, or of your 28 Jan letter to EHJ. I have accepted concessions because you seem anxious to have them. Think better to abandon district plan because of Bell competition & PO opposition provided London Co is strong enough for the whole business. Have obliged London Co to amalgamate with Glasgow & assume debts. New arrangement will be to our interest. Bell Co expanded faster than us because of advantages of their receiver: "the loudness of ours does not seem to counterbalance with the public the disadvantage of turning the crank."
