Title

[D8630L], Letter from Societe Electrique Edison to Thomas Alva Edison, January 27th, 1886

Editor's Notes

We would be able to sell to one of the largest houses[?] of Buenos Aires, having a firm in Paris, some dynamos and lamps which are to be shipped to the Argentine Republic. ##Now, if you will grant us the permission to sell to that country, we will willingly credit you with 5% commission on all we sell there. ##If you do not consent to do so, then the above-mentioned house will buy here the electrical material from Girard[?], Brush, or some other competitor. ##It is, therefore, much in your interest to let us do that business, as it seems from what we hear that nor at Buenos Aires nor in the whole Argentine Republic was there any agent of the Edison Co., nor any material of the Edison system to be found. ##It is only with great difficulty that we managed to let that merchant wait yet a few days before buying from our cmpetitors, should you consent that we should do that business under the above-mentioned conditions, kindly wire us the words 'Consent Argentina' and confirm same by letter.
