[D8630U], Letter from Frazar & Co to Thomas Alva Edison, March 22nd, 1886

Editor's Notes

We advise you that we are instructed by Mr. Yashima, Pres. Of the Tokyo Electric Light Co, to order the Edison plant for the Osaka Boseki Cotton Mills per your estimate of Dec. 10, 1885 and the specifications coded "Galmitiesco[?]." ##We enclose a Demand draft of the Hong Kong & [---] Banking[?] Corp. No 22/78 in your favor for U.S. gold $2,500, part payment in advance for this plant and request our NY office to arrange for a further payment in due course. ##Our friends desire this plant to be shipped by steamer via Suez to Hiogo, Japan. They are anxious to receive the plant ASAP and we shall be glad to learn that an early date is fixed for shipment. ##We observe the second set of specifications coded "Palmitiesco[?]" differ in several particulars from the first which they were sent to replace. [Gives specifics of differences.] ##We presume everything will be thoroughly tested before shipment. We would especially request the utmost care be exercised in packing securely, that the packages should be correctly marked and each given a number to correspond with the numbers in the Invoice. We have stated that you suggested it would be desirable to have an expert from home superintend the installation of the plant, but our friends express confidence in their own ability, with the aid of Prof. Fujioka, to put it in good working order. ##As this is the first electric light plant to be introduced in Japan, we have no doubt you will share in the interest expressed on this side to secure a successful working and that in the preparation of the plant no effort will be spared to secure this end.
