[D8135ZAF], Letter from Otto A Moses to Thomas Alva Edison, August 2nd, 1881

Abstract

Batchelor arrived with his family and rest of staff on Saturday. We are more along in preparations than any other exhibitor. Met Preece, Hughes, and Bright yesterday. Preece and Hughes "expressed themselves anxious to have all the previous unpleasantness absolutely forgotten." An editor from La Lumiere Electrique came over saying that since both Maxim and Swan wanted cuts printed of their lights, we should also have a show. Maxim's cut was a picture gallery and Swan's of a street in Newcastle; Moses suggested TAE light shown in a sitting room with "a lady sewing or reading" under a 3 lamp chandielier "and a gentleman at a desk like yours with one lamp over it." Expo is taking shape but there will not be a full opening.
