[D8547ZAC], Letter from Dillwyn Parrish to Thomas Alva Edison, May 14th, 1885

Editor's Notes

"You will remember when I saw you in New York in December you brought before me a suggestion that you should be retained by the United Telephone Coy upon somewhat the same principle as you were by the Bell Telephone Coy of America . . ." Can't do anything to bring the matter before the board until you provide information previously requested on your current telephone work; Johnson gave me option to purchase his telephone patents that you said get around Bell and TAE patents for $25,000 and will send instruments as soon as inventions are protected; still haven't received Johnson's patent specifications, instruments, or information on TAE's work in response to requests on Feb. 10 and Mar. 3; bids TAE to look into the matter; hopes his nephew Hamilton is giving statisfaction in the laboratory and TAE will consider him for advancement.
