[D8123ZDY], Letter from Francis Robbins Upton to Thomas Alva Edison, September 25th, 1881

Item

Abstract

Money issue becoming more important. Bit of detail about need to pay vendors' bills and bad coal shipments. Turning out 900-1000 lamps a day at running expenses of $1700-1800 a week. Need to reduce this, but layoffs or 2-week shutdown out of the question.
