Title

[D8233ZED], Letter from Southwark Foundry and Machine Co, William H Merrick to Thomas Alva Edison, October 17th, 1882

Editor's Notes

"I enclose a note received from the E.M. Co which surprises us greatly. We sold the Engines therein referred to only on the most urgent solicitation of Mr Dean backed by your authorization of the sale and its terms. Our reluctance to let the engines go was caused by the assertion on the part of your people in N.Y. that they were not satisfactory--they were sold subject to no reclamations whatever & with a full knowledge of their alleged defects-- We expressly declined to ship them on the basis of the final payment being dependent on a satisfactory test and the payment of the amount of cush balance is now & has been for some time legally & equitably our due." Wants to meet to clear this up.
