[D8631C], Letter from John Marshall Clark to Thomas Alva Edison, June 2nd, 1886

Editor's Notes

[One-page typed letter, Chicago to New York. Letterhead: Western Edison Light Company] Summary: Clark writes that he's been contacted by a young man named Moriarty who is "trying to get us to take interest in a company of which Mr. Vaile [sic] (of Bell Telephone Co.) is President." ## Company claims "to have all the patents of any value, including Faure's relating to storage batteries." Storage battery has been "greatly improved" "reliable" and will "return 95 per cent of the power put into it." Moriarity claims TAE "endorses" the battery. ## Clark concludes letter by asking for Edison's evaluation of battery and "any information you may have to give us on the subject" before the company enters into any business agreements.
