[D8316BSG], Letter from Thomas Alva Edison to Edison Electric Light Co, Sherburne Blake Eaton, December 13th, 1883

Editor's Notes

[consider for selection] Bill for $7700 owed Construction dept and $1100 for amounts paid by me on the Light Co's acct. Plus $38k for electric railroad experiments and $25k to the Edison Machine Works in improving dyanmos, which cut cost 25% and increasing the amount of light. Asks $30K for continuing dynamo expts. Have transferred inventions on railroad to Edison Railroad but still have claim against Edison Electric Light in this connection. As to the dynamo experiments, as the Light Co. carried my stock for me, not asking for full reimbursment but asking for up to $30k to experimient with increasing the capacity of central station dynamo. Want $5k immediately on the first two ammounts.
