[D8316AEV], Letter from Thomas Alva Edison to Joshua Franklin Bailey, July 6th, 1883

Editor's Notes

Paris has been asking about models for Siemens, but they were not "even designed at the time you originally cabled for them. We shipped a model H 450 light machine immediate it was tested, and so soon as other machines come along we will ship them also." When designing a new model, "a great deal of time is consumed in experimentation", impossible to promise shipment date; "What I want you to understand is that when you ask for machines, we do not forget all about it and overlook the matter, until your next cable arrives." Showed Mr. Von Muller around, will visit after trip West before returning to Europe. Building 4 small central stations, 2 in PA and 2 in MA, negotiating for 6 more, no less that 40 towns being canvassed. "Our Isolated Company's business promises to be very large this Summer."--contracted to do work at Louisville in 40 days, 20 days left. Asks to be informed of the business in Europe.
