[D8353K], Letter from Joseph Hutchinson to Thomas Alva Edison, August 10th, 1883

Editor's Notes

Letterhead of Edison Company for Isolated Attachment to previous document but scanned as a different document # You condemn without audience.The stuart order reached this office on Wed July 25th not July 14th as you say. A statement of matrials thought to be required was made out and forwarded on the next day to commence work on Monday.We were not advised that the plant would start with fewer than 60 lamps and the work of the wiring was thought would requie ten or twelve days. The engine of the Vanderbilts was first thought of and it taken down and renovated but upon second thought a new engine was orderd from Armington and Sims . Which was fowarded yesterday This daly we could not control .we wrote and telegraphed them and in no way omitted to hurry them. I don’t think 2 weeks is too much is very bad to complete a plant including engine. TAE marginalia ' Your points are well taken = I forgive you +stuart seems unrealiable.
